These girls live in a remote mountain village, dominated by drugs cartels. Most of the men have left to find work elsewhere, leaving their women behind with no money. The women therefore have to labour in the poppy fields, and try to keep their daughters out of the clutches of gangs who kidnap girls for the sex industry.
