A woman turns to prostitution and then must surrender her income to the leader of a human trafficking ring. But when her daughter’s illness and a drug addiction prevent her from delivering her usual share, she will have to find a way to stop obeying and take justice into her own hands.
Grappling with the painful cycle of sexual exploitation, Gabriela Calvache’s unflinching narrative debut erupts in furor and revenge. Steeped in an atmosphere of unease heightened by the jagged editing, this bracing tale of survival lays bare the violence that engulfs sex workers in Latin America.
