A Whore Like Me

A Whore like Me

When Chile was 22, she was kidnapped from a pub in Hungary and sold to a group of Israelis who trafficked for prostitution. Today, twenty years later, Chile is a different woman, one who has managed to get out of the drug abuse cycle, celebrating 10 years of sobriety, and volunteering at the Levinsky Clinic to try and help women on the street.
When the Ministry of Interior in Israel refuses to give Chile a resident certificate and to believe that she is a victim of trafficking in women, she goes looking for her kidnappers to obtain proof. The journey to the past forces Chile to return to the scene of prostitution, only this time with a little more power and a camera in hand. Chile begins to document and work through the trauma, but can you go back to your most painful place and stay alive?
