Dana, a beautiful woman, turns to prostitution against her will. She must surrender her income to the leader of a human trafficking ring, but her daughter’s illness and a drug addiction prevent her from delivering her usual share. Dana decides to take matters into her own hands when she meets a young girl that might end up just like her. Gabriela Calvache’s uncompromising feature debut throws a harsh spotlight on the sexual abuse and exploitation of women and children across Latin America.

Dana, una mujer hermosa, se vuelve prostituta en contra de su voluntad. Ella debe entregar sus ingresos al líder de una red de tráfico de personas, pero la enfermedad de su hija y la adicción a las drogas le impiden entregar su parte habitual. Dana decide tomar cartas en el asunto cuando conoce a una niña que podría terminar igual que ella. Gabriela Calvache presenta un duro retrato sobre el abuso sexual y la explotación de mujeres y niños en toda América Latina.
