Crystal, a young Indonesian girl, is in an Immigration office being questioned about her false papers and illegal refugee application. About to be sent to a Detention Centre and deported, her allegations of multiple rape and appalling captive conditions seem to make little difference to the Immigration Officer.
Brought in by human trafficking syndicates to work as prostitutes, she is one of the many modern sex slaves in Australia that are conveniently deported when they hit their ‘used by date’. Meanwhile a young Melbourne woman, Ashley Hudson, reluctantly agrees to help a Chinese mother search for her missing daughter.
As the story unravels the sinister workings of illegal prostitution and governmental deportation and is filled with twists and surprises. Inspired by actual events and Australian court transcripts.
