Lori works illegally in a rented flat in central London, living in fear of police raids which could mean losing her small daughter. Freya is a student who finds she can make more money as an escort than she could in an office. And Paula is a journalist whose long-term campaign against prostitution has brought her some strange bedfellows. After a shock change to the law, with brothels being raided by the authorities, lives across the country are fractured. As a threat from Lori's past begins to catch up with her, the three women are increasingly, inevitably drawn into each other's orbit.
