1. WHORE'S GLORY

It is Michael Glawogger's third documentary about many issues that are affecting the world. The documentary is based on the stories of prostitution around the world focusing on the lives and individual hopes, needs and experiences of the women. It has been branded by rotten tomatoes, a movie review website as an audacious, non-judgmental study of sexuality, politics, human behaviour and the effects of capital and religion on both women and men from starkly different cultures.

Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah's wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan and the closer they get, the deeper they're all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.
