Log Line

Twenty-six-year-old Filipina, Maria, applies for a migrant entertainer job in South Korea. That was
the beginning of Maria’s two-year journey.

Synopsis

The film chronicles Maria’s hopes, dreams, and crucial reality for two years to lay bare the legalized
system of sex trafficking between South Korea and the Philippines. Maria has been dreaming about
escaping from her slum neighborhood in Davao, Philippines, and getting a job abroad. When Maria was
introduced to a talent manager, Madam Yolanda, her dream was about to come true. Manager Yolanda
operates a training center and a temporary boarding house in Manila for women like Maria. Yolanda has
witnessed the ups and downs of the sex industries of neighboring Asian countries and sees the
openings in the industry as job opportunities for poor Filipino women.
