        Broken Dolls (Razbitye Kuklu)

Broken Dolls (Razbitye Kuklu)

I'm dead inside . . . just a whore. This is all I know how to do. . . So, I willingly came back. . .' Narcisa, a young Moldavian woman, is tricked and sold into the sex industry, after a recruitment meeting turned nightmare. Razbitye Kuklu (Broken Dolls) exposes the horrific traumas suffered under a male-supremacist ideology, engineered to indoctrinate the victim, leaving her no choice, but to become the perpetrator. With accounts of broken lives, endless cycles of rape, sadistic punishment, shattered dreams of escape and brutal deportations, this is the reality of the post-communist, free-market economy.
