Rhode Island. The only state where indoor prostitution is legal. It had been over 25 years since five prostitutes sued the state of Rhode Island for selective prosecution, and prostitution laws were removed from the books when documentarians T.L. Hurley and Nick Marcoux turned thier cameras on the under belly of "The Renaissance City" Providence, RI. Watch the drama unfold in asian massage parlors as Mayor David Cicilline of the City of Providence pushes to close the prostitution "loophole". Follow "Heather", a Korean immigrant, over two years as she manages a massage parlor. Learn about the women who work in the spas. Hear from the police who arrest them. Watch the fight for and against legislation.
The film includes subtitled interviews with Korean women who work in the spas, clients who frequent the spas, Police, Politicians from 1980 and today, local news footage, local radio call in shows, and “voiced” reviews from internet escort review boards. This film experiments with both the narrative and documentary style of film creating a new style of cinema verite.
