Plot

In early 20th century Argentina, an ordinary mother was torn from her children, and tricked into prostitution. Other women conceded their fate. But not Raquel. The thought of her sons gave her strength to fight back. Her defiance gives voice to those who've been and continue to be sexually exploited.
