This gripping expose of human trafficking tells the story of Kathryn, an American police officer who takes a job as a UN peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. After initial success in prosecuting a case of domestic violence, Kathryn is offered a job in the United Nations Gender Affairs Office, working with the police to investigate rape and domestic abuse. But her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country and protect women from violence are routed when she uncovers a ring of UN officials and private contractors smuggling young women in from the Ukraine to service a back-woods brothel. Against a sordid and corrupt backdrop, Rachael Weisz and Vanessa Redgrave give tension filled, dramatic performances in the directorial debut of Canadian filmmaker Larysa Kondracki.
