(Portugal/France/Italy/Russia, 2006, 126 minutes)

A young Russian leaves her country and her family behind to make a better living abroad, but finds herself in the hands of human traffickers. Arthouse melodrama of the seedier side of contemporary society that, while powerfully presented and performed, is too abstract to be as harrowing as its makers intend it to be.
