    • Synopsis
    • Linh, an Australian-Vietnamese university student, has taken part-time escort work to pay her
      unemployed father’s debts and save the family home from repossession. Travelling from client to client,
      her secret life is shared with Dion, her laconic and protective driver and Mint, an experienced Thai callgirl.
      Confident and intelligent, Linh negotiates her way through tricky situations dealing with clients that
      can be amusing, unpleasant and occasionally downright bizarre.
      Linh struggles to keep her parallel lives firmly apart, attempting to juggle student life with her nocturnal
      employment and forced constantly to lie to her family and her new college boyfriend, Jack.
      As the emotional strain takes its toll, she finds the only person she can confide in is Luke, one of her
      regular clients, an enigmatic and secretive ex-US Marine dealing in looted Iraqi treasures on the
      underground fine arts market.
      But it is only a matter of time before her two worlds collide. First she is exposed and ridiculed by her
      fellow students then, as a witness to murder, her work as a call-girl becomes front page news.
      Now she must deal with the shock and distress of her family, for whom she sacrificed everything, and
      summon new-found strength to maintain her self esteem.
