Synopsis:

Social worker Renáta Toszecky manages a women’s shelter in Hungary, operated by Hungarian Baptist Aid. The clients in the shelter are victims of human trafficking who were once forced into prostitution. Social workers at the shelter are trying to help redirect these women's lives and enable them to start anew with their children. The film follows Renáta as she carries out her everyday tasks supporting three battered women, and gives us a glimpse into the challenges of social work.
