A whore like me

When Csilla was 22, she was kidnapped from a pub in Hungary and sold to a group of Israelis who trafficked for prostitution. Today, twenty years later, Csilla is a different woman, one who has managed to get out of the drug abuse cycle, celebrating 10 years of sobriety, and volunteering at the Levinsky Clinic to try and help women on the street.
When the Ministry of Interior in Israel refuses to give Csilla a resident certificate and to believe that she is a victim of trafficking in women, she goes looking for her kidnapper to obtain proof. The journey to the past forces Csilla to return to the scene of prostitution, only this time with a little more power and a camera in hand. Csilla begins to document and work through the trauma, but can you go back to your most painful place and stay alive?
