DOING MONEY | New York State Premiere

Lynsey Miller | U.K. | 2018 | 87'

A young Romanian woman is snatched in broad daylight from a London street, trafficked to Ireland and used as a sex slave in a series of pop-up brothels. Her shocking true story offers a tense and thought-provoking thriller exposing how, in modern Britain, as in many other modern
countries, slavery can hide in plain sight.
