LOGLINE: A Romanian woman is snatched off the streets of London in broad daylight, trafficked through a series of pop-up brothels in the UK, and subjected to physical, psychological, and sexual abuse. Based on a true story.

SYNOPSIS: A Romanian living in London, Ana (Anca Dumitra) is a part-time nursing student and cleaning lady, until one day she is grabbed off the street in broad daylight. Threatened with the life of her mother, she is flown out to Northern Ireland and trafficked through a series of pop-up brothels in the United Kingdom as a sex slave. She soon becomes known to paying customers as a noncompliant girl and survives physical, sexual, and psychological abuse for a year. Authorities (including Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech) track her movements and those of other girls and women like her, but have no case unless someone comes forth to testify against their captors, who exercise brutal and dehumanizing psychological control over them.
