    A shocking inside view of the African human trafficking and forced prostitution business. The documentary tells the very personal stories of Faith, Linda, Betty and Queen four Nigerian girls whose dream of a better future turned into a prostitution nightmare on the streets of Europe. Seduced by the perceived wealth of Europe, they fell into the clutches of brutal women traffickers. First they are forced to submit to an occult "juju" ritual in a domestic shrine. Debased and terrorized, they promise unconditional loyalty to their tormentors in a bloody ceremony. Those who survive the subsequent dangerous journey through the Sahara arrive immediately on the streets of Turin, Rome or Verona as exotic sex slaves. At the hub of this brutal new African slave trade are Nigerian female pimps, who make the human trafficking business from Nigeria the only major organized crime business worldwide controlled by women. This documentary sheds light on a new form of slavery between Nigeria and countries such as Italy, where today an estimated one in three prostitutes comes from Nigeria.
