Synopsis

A 22-year-old Csilla was abducted from a pub in Hungary and sold to a prostitution ring in Israel. Having escaped her kidnappers, she tries to rebuild her life in a country whose language she has learned in the meantime. However, the Ministry of Interior refuses to grant her a certificate of residency, citing lack of proof for her years as a forced prostitute. Searching for anyone who could prove her experiences, Csilla hires a private detective and invites the filmmakers into her memories.
