Each year hundreds of women are taken from their homes and forced into a life of prostitution and sexual slavery. This is the story of ten of them. A Belgian criminal gang head east to Lithuania to recruit young women desperate to leave their impoverished lives. Promising a glamorous life as members of a stage dance troupe, the girls are eager to sign up. From the training in Cyprus, to the strip clubs and illegal brothers in Belgium, the girls from the start are forced into a life of rape, abuse, murder and misery. The police are slow and corrupt, and the gangsters are always one step ahead of the law. Written by
In this series some young Russian and Lituanian girls are recruited by some Belgians with the promise that they will earn a lot of money as dancers (not as strippers) and that they will be able to build a better future for themselves and their families. But from the beginning on the problems start: their contracts are in Greek, they are first sent to a nightclub on Cyprus and they soon realize that their situation won't get any better. But what they don't even know yet is that they will not only have to strip. They will also have to work as prostitutes and they will never be free for as long as they work in the nightclubs...
I've been working as a policeman in Belgium Antwerp for many years now and often deal with slavery like this. so i'm glad some people took it upon them to make a series about it. Making Belgian people very much aware of what is going on.
I must say that the item is worked out very well and from my point of view as a policeman it's very adequate. although the end-scene is somewhat a loose-end to the series as viewing all the facts decisions are not wright. But that's the policeman speaking, no one else cares.
the series are great because of the dialogs in mostly Antwerp-dialect. if you see it in your language or subtitled it will loose much of it's originality, i'm afraid.
None the less, you have to see this one. It's already sold to 30 foreign TV-stations and will be broad-casted soon. This must mean that the series are great.
