Background story

Soroe, Denmark

Bonnie Cleo Andersen (38), mother of three, has been a sex-worker in Denmark since the age of 18.

Prostitution is legal in Denmark. Bonnie works during the day in a small house in a village in the east of the country, then picks her children up after school to take them home, in another village 15 km away.

Her chief hope is that they will have better lives than hers.
