A Belgian criminal gang travels from Antwerp to Lithuania to recruit young Eastern European girls. After getting a 'special training program' in Cyprus, the girls end up in strip joints and brothels in Belgium, while some of them are sold to pimps in Holland and Germany. Belgium turns out to be the perfect transit country for traffic in women. The police are slow, while immigration officers are corrupt. It is easy money for the gangsters. But this latest group of girls are giving them a hard time. And there is also this very ambitious investigative journalist and a former gang member who is deep in debt…
