Promised Land (2004)

Sobre o filme

Under the Sinai desert moon, a group of young women from Eastern Europe warms up in front of a camp fire. These people are part of a clandestine convoy led by Arabs on camels. The group is on the border of Israeli territory, to where these young women will be taken as victims of the lucrative white slave trade. These girls have no choice and their future is to be put up for auction like cattle. They’re frequently subjected to all sorts of violence and abuse in exclusive prostitution clubs. For these expatriates, without families and friends, there are few options left for a genuine human contact. Yet, one of the local night club madams tries to provide these girls with a little comfort, and a few close bonds are formed between them. However, they don´t have anything to look forward to in this unpromised land.
