    • Synopsis
    • Louise and Martine Fokkens are identical twins. For over fifty years they have been working as prostitutes. They freed themselves from the control of their pimps, ran their own brothel, and set up the first informal trade union for prostitutes. They are familiar faces in Amsterdam's Red Light District, but soon they will bid their farewells. A portrait of two remarkable women, as well as a history of the Red Light District over the past fifty years.
