Everything's Better than a Hooker

Là où les putains n'existent pas

In 2013, a woman in Sweden was stabbed to death by the father of her children during a meeting with social services. In the past, the court had decided that, despite a history of violence, the man would get the sole custody of the children, because their mother had previously worked as an escort. A staggering investigation of a murder that shook European public opinion and turned a sex worker into a symbol of the fight for women’s rights, in a film that struggles (and wins the battle) against anger and mourning.
