Bonnie and the Thousand Men

Bonnie and the Thousand Men

Today, twenty years later, Bonnie still works as a prostitute. She is proud of her job, she works hard, and the men are waiting in line in their cars outside the brothel. But Bonnie is sick and her body is weak. She knows that her job is wearing her out. Still, she continues her self-destructive course – she can not stop.

Bonnie and the Thousand Men is an extreme close up and an honest portrait of the very hard and vulnerable life working as a prostitute for more than 2 decades – a life that is only bearable with the strong support of family and friends and where the dream of a new beginning is never far away.
