More than 80,000 people have demanded Netflix remove the Polish erotic drama 365 Days because the movie glorifies pornography, sex trafficking and rape.

According to the Netflix description, 365 Days is about a woman who falls victim to a dominant Mafia boss. The Mafia boss imprisons her and gives her one year to fall in love with him.

“At a time when our nation is enmeshed in a dialogue about eliminating vestiges of slavery and oppression in America and at a time when 4 million adults and 1 million children around the world are victims of forced sexual exploitation, Netflix has given their corporate imprimatur to sexual exploitation by distributing—and profiting from—a film that asks viewers to be entertained by it. We urgently, fervently call on Netflix to recognize their complicity in humanity’s worst behavior, and to remove this toxic film from its distribution platform immediately,” said Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council.

According to a change.org petition, the Mafia boss “talks about child trafficking, sedates her, imprisons her, sexually assaults her, and has sexual relations with her without consent. The main character also uses abuse tactics such as gas-lighting, coercion, reproductive coercion and Stockholm Syndrome to financially, physically, sexually, emotionally and digitally abuse the woman he had taken. To our terribly corrupt culture, it looks like another ‘steamy’ and sexy love story.”

More than 80,000 people have signed the petition to have Netflix remove the abhorrent movie.

The movie continually ranks as one the top 10 most-streamed items on Netflix. Forbes reports that 365 Days owned the No. 1 spot for eight of the 11 days it has appeared on the Top 10.
