In 1996, in the Balkans, the population of a small town is slaughtered by a militia under the command of the inhuman Goran that abducts young girls for prostitution in a brothel owned by the cruel Viktor. The deaf Angel that witnessed the execution of her mother has a weird birth mark on the face and Viktor chooses her to housework; to put makeup and drug the girls for the clients; and cleaning them up after the brutal encounters. Angel also sneaks between the walls and ventilation ducts during the night. Angel befriends the girl Vanya that knows the language of the deaf. When Goran returns to the house with his men, Angel witnesses one of them raping and killing Vanya and she revenges her new friend killing the man. Now Goran and his men are hunting her down and she is trapped in the house.Written by

I give it a 10 out of 10, not because it's the perfect movie or was enjoyable, it certainly was not enjoyable, but because it's such an important subject matter. Thousands upon thousands of women are preyed upon by evil men each year. Every second people are raped and tortured and abused.
But how much is really done about it? Considering the magnitude of this evil, almost nothing. So movies like this are very important to increase public awareness. And maybe there will come a more determined effort by the general public some day to remove this evil from the world.
I'd recommend that movie to anyone. And by the way there is some strong acting in this movie. In fact it feels real, as if I was watching something which really is happening and not being acted.(well in fact it IS real, well reality is probably worse or just as bad). In Bombay alone are over 250,000 women, girls and children in forced prostitution.....
