"Natasha is a nickname given to prostitutes with Eastern European looks. Sex-trafficked girls hate it." —Dana Popa

Traveling from London to her birthplace in Eastern Europe Dana Popa recorded the plight of sex-trafficked women from Eastern Europe. Sold by friends, family or even their husbands for sometimes just a few hundred dollars, these women and girls live a tawdry and dangerous life on the fringes and in the shadows of our culture.
