Although the film is intended to deliver a sharply critical message, in doing so, it depicts many graphic acts of sex and violence.

    Very Sad, but so very true

    I saw this first in Japan About three years ago, its very truth film, not the best acting. Its worth seeing, but not for the fainted heart. Not a sex film, but tells truth about poor weak minded people forced to sell themselfs.
