Two siblings (Silvana Imam, Philip Oros) spend their days and nights looking for food and somewhere to sleep; when they’re offered to serve as drivers for what turns out to be a human trafficking ring, they accept. In her feature film debut, the director was inspired by Lukas Moodysson’s horrifying depiction of prostitution, Lilya 4-Ever (2002). The impact of this film isn’t quite as nightmarish, because of its beautiful neon cinematography and a less effective second half. Still, well made; the film’s chief asset is the acting debut of rap star Imam who’s convincing as the protective sister.
