Sónia (Ana Moreira), a young girl from St. Petersburg, aims for a better life. After obtaining a passport, she travels through Europe until she arrives in Portugal. This journey is quickly transformed into a descent into hell and Sónia ends up entangled in the underworld of international prostitution. Kidnapping, pain, solitude, madness, violence, abjection, humiliation - these are the challenges that Sonia must overcome. More than a persistent fear that oppresses the character, there is also a massive amount of misunderstandings due to the languages and behaviours that she does not understand. But her courage remains strong and redemption seems possible in the shape of a hope in love that will never be completely destroyed.
