Bad Dreams


Europe, From Rhetoric to Reality

Teenage girls attending a La Strada school’s workshop, about trafficking in women, talk about their ambitions. “I want to work abroad” say a significant number. Atmospheric dramatisations show what happened to other girls who followed that dream, to become barmaids, au-pairs or dancers, only to find themselves sold into the sex industry, far away from home. The stories are of young women frightened, imprisoned and raped and of their courage, resilience, their escape to freedom and bid to punish those responsible.
