Liyah, a young Congolese woman, living in Johannesburg, takes on the responsibility of supporting her mother and siblings after the passing of her father. Frustrated from struggling and working minimum wage jobs, Liyah takes a chance and responds to an online advertisement for a surrogate. Rick, a wealthy American, who is known for his impulsive and carefree playboy behaviour, faces losing his inheritance and his family business if he does not produce an heir. Liyah and Rick are the complete opposite of one another, indomitable forces that collide with each other, yet they are about to change each other’s lives. Dappling in lust, love and lies; Traded is a gamble of the unexpected, a dangerous crossing of boundaries and infinite treachery. Not everyone makes it out alive.
