Ary used to live in the countryside. Forced by her mother to marry a man she doesn`t love, she runs away to Phnom Penh a few days before the wedding. But once there, she quickly finds herself trapped: sold off several times over, she is forced to dance in bars or is beaten. She becomes an escort girl and earns a good living going out with foreigners.
