Description: Young Russian girls join a modeling agency to seek work in Japan and find themselves caught up in an unregulated system that reveals an unseemly side of the fashion industry. In particular, here we follow Ashley, a model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces for the Japanese market. One of her discoveries is Nadya, a 13-year-old girl plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable modeling career. After Ashley?s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound.
