Each year hundreds of women are taken from their homes and forced into a life of prostitution and sexual slavery. This is the story of ten of them. A Belgian criminal gang head east to Lithuania to recruit young women desperate to leave their impoverished lives. Promising a glamorous life as members of a stage dance troupe, the girls are eager to sign up. From the training in Cyprus, to the strip clubs and illegal brothers in Belgium, the girls from the start are forced into a life of rape, abuse, murder and misery. The police are slow and corrupt, and the gangsters are always one step ahead of the law.
Women trader Ray Van Mechelen and his companion Mark Camps organize dance auditions in Vilnius, Lithuania. They claim to be recruiting dancers for touring the top nightclubs in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany. A local 'talent scout' is hired to keep up the appearances and win the trust of the candidates. Meanwhile, the bodies of two Russian prostitutes are found near Antwerp in Belgium. All traces lead back to the gang of Ray Van Mechelen. The police interrogates a henchman of Van Mechelen, Mike Simons, who is willing to talk, but he wants guarantees that he will receive witness protection. Police inspector Clem De Donder does not believe him. In Vilnius, Belgian research journalist Nico Maes tries in vain to stop some girls to go into 'business' with Van Mechelen. Suspicion arises with Kasandra, one of the candidates, when Van Mechelen wants her to sign an artist contract in Greek language. She contacts the local police, but her best friend Daria wants to leave Lithuania at all
On the Greek island of Cyprus, the recruited dancers take part in 'dance education sessions', and all illusions of a bright and fortunate future disappear for the girls. The gang of Van Mechelen forces the girls to striptease dance in a local nightclub. Olga and Deborah however manage to escape. Mike Simons reports at the police station in Antwerp and provides information about the criminal activities of Van Mechelen and his gang. Inspector De Donder however remains remarkably skeptical, and denies Simons witness protection. Journalist Nico Maes publishes a revealing article about women trafficking and the laxity of the Belgian police to do something about this issue. Vincent Dockx, son of godfather John Dockx, gets arrested in connection with the murder on the two Russian prostitutes. Ray van Mechelen gets nervous and intervenes.
