directed by Krishna Ashu Bhati
Sweet like love, bitter like betrayal.
After a terrible fight with her conservative parents, 19-year-old Mina moves in with her sister Mandy, who works a prostitute. Mina finds love when she meets Tony, a DJ with financial problems. But two sinister debt collectors give them a drastic ultimatum: they have three days to raise 11 000 Euros. Mandy’s advice to Mina is a diabolic one: to sell the costliest thing she possesses, her virginity.
