A girl from East-Europa, Tatiana, went with her friend to the Netherlands after believing promises that she would get a well-paid job. Instead, betrayal and humiliation awaited her. Her boyfriend sold her to a pimp who forced her into prostitution. After some time, she found the strength to stand up to the abuse, and she sought help from the police and the state authorities. Instead of salvation, however, she became part of a protracted legal process, which did not afford her or her family any protection from a criminal gang. Nevertheless, Tatiana did not give up and continued to fight for her rights for several years. The non-traditional style of this film underlines her dramatic life story of iniquity and injustice, which had to be endured twice. Details of themes and scenes from the life of this strong and independent woman complement the flow of her testimony. The use of a collage of images is a more suitable illustration than a simple interview. This very personal portrait exposes a mafia system that trades in easy victims in developed countries. In particular, it lays bare the weaknesses and deficiencies of a democratic establishment, which professes to help the weak and the oppressed.
