Valkyries

2020 - Corona regulations prohibit prostitution. Brothels are closing. Like many sex workers, Martha, Elena and Toni are forced to offer themselves on the street, where the defenselessness of the women is mercilessly exploited.
Trust in the state and the police seems to have been extinguished, so the three sex workers take the initiative and fight back.
Vigilante justice.
