Shot under dangerous conditions in some of the most squalid parts of Mexico City, this documentary tells the story of Rosa Zaragoza, a prostitute who has fought back against organized crime and police corruption. Zaragoza was kidnapped at age seven by three policemen who raped her and forced her into prostitution. She worked as a streetwalker for 30 years and managed to raise eight children. Outraged at the exploitation and violence that she and others have faced, Zaragoza became a spokesperson for the rights of prostitutes; she organized a union to advocate on their behalf, acted as a mentor for younger women, and publicly exposed police officers who were also pimps. She was kidnapped, raped, and beaten for her courageous stand, but she continued to fight. The filmmakers were also attacked during the production of this documentary.
