VÂNĂTOARE / Prowl

VÂNĂTOARE / Prowl

Lidia grows pigeons and lives a mundane existence with a husband and two children. Denisa, the feistiest of the three, wants to buy her freeloading boyfriend a new pair of sneakers. Vanesa, the youngest, dreams of finding the perfect guy with green eyes. All three share a workplace as sex workers under a bridge on the highway connecting Bucharest to the next city. Their relationship is strained by competition for clients and territory. In spite of their rivalry, the three women spawn stories about their hardships and their loves, because the threats coming from outside of their circle are much stronger than the ones within.
