This movie wants to champion and challenge our preconceptions about women. We see the female members of the Israeli military involved in training. Models are shown posing for true crime magazine covers, and the 'ritual' of topless sunbathing is explored. Around the world, sex is still the number one trade as women are exploited. We follow prostitutes as they ply their trade on the streets and windows of specifically designated districts and hang around nightclubs that feature scandalous shows.
