Promised Land



Directed by: Amos Gitai

(87 mins) A night in the Sinai desert. A group of men and women keep warm around a campfire under the moonlight. The women come from Eastern Europe. The men who normally mind their herds in the area are Bedouins. Tomorrow they will secretly cross the border. Tomorrow, Diana and the others will be beaten, raped and auctioned off. They will be passed from one hand to another, merchandized by Anne into Hanna's hostess club, victims of an international network of trafficking women. One night in the club, Diana meets Rose. She asks her for help. Their encounter is a sign of hope in the women's descent into hell.
