Storyline

Lota and Tigist, two girls living in two different countries, Bangladesh and Ethiopia, are linked by the same journey starting from poverty and ending up in the hell of an extremely difficult life. They were both born in rural areas, they both faced poverty or abuses. The only option was to run away. Next destinations were the mega-cities of Dhaka and Addis Ababa. In Dhaka young girls like Lota work in garment factories, which are a sort of slammer, exposed to every kind of imposition and restriction. In Addis Ababa young girls like Tigist quickly downfall into the hell of sex work. Yet in spite of how tough their lives are, they reveal an inner strength and great dignity. The both fight for a life that, maybe tomorrow, will be better.
