The Price of Sex is a disturbing look into the world of human trafficking of Eastern European women. Filmmaker Mimi Chakarova interviews current and former victims, clients and anti-trafficking activists. She also goes undercover with a hidden camera to one of the clubs where women have been forced into prostitution and films major streets where these women solicit clients, often the local police. Such first hand accounts and primary footage give The Price of Sex a palpable sense of danger.
The film also provides unique insight into the fall of Communism which led to the harsh economic climate that made these women vulnerable to the tactics of the traffickers. Often, Chakarova laments how things were better under Communism and takes the viewer to her all but abandoned hometown.
