An impoverished young woman from rural Peru is lured to Spain by her cousin with the promise of work, and then forced into the dark world of prostitution with no hope of escape. Evelyn (Cindy Diaz) is an innocent girl from a poor family. When Evelyn's family receives word that her cousin Margarita (Ari Rubiano Saavedra) has found restaurant work in Spain, the pack her bags, and put her on an airplane. But the young girl's optimism turns to horror when she's driven to a remote brothel, and handed over to ruthless owner Ricardo (Alfonso Fernandez), who forces her to sell her body in order to make up for the transportation costs she's incurred. At first terrified, Evelyn gradually begins to relent as her will is broken, and her innocence eroded in a corrosive sea of desperation and debauchery.
