Sorvino and Donald Sutherland) to end the reign of slave crime boss
Sergei Karpovich (Robert Carlyle) who runs a a modeling agency in
the former USSR by targeting girls seeking a better life through
the world of modelling.
However instead of the life of a model,
these naive girls seeking freedom from the former USSR are thrown
into the international sex trade with strip clubs as brothels.
Sergei uses fear, violence and drugs to keep these girls against
their wishes and when his interests turn to the Far East, he steals
children from their homes to work in child brothels in Manila or

This drama features some seriously
disturbing content that features some extraordinary acting from
Sutherland and Sorvino who under the direction of Christian Duguay
force the viewer to ponder the darker side of society. Gripping!
