Overview

In Istanbul, Turkey, 18-year-old Morena is auctioned by a group of wealthy and successful men. She ended up being sold for a U$3.500 bid. The next scene shows Morena running desperately through the streets, screaming for help. The scene flashes back to eight months earlier.

Morena is a single-mother who lives with her four-year-old son Junior and her mom Lucimar helps her to support him. Though unemployed, she manages to garner strength and resolve in order to forge her own path.

Following the 2010 occupation of the Complexo do Alemão by the Brazilian Army, Morena meets Theo, a cavalry officer who is charmed by her spontaneity and sensuality. They fall in love, unaware that love does not conquer all.

Motivated by the prospect of a better future and facing eviction, Morena accepts a job offer to work in a coffeehouse in Istanbul for a few months. Her decision, however, not only ends her engagement to Theo, who disapproves of her trip, but leads to her being a victim of an international human trafficking ring.

Cunning Wanda, who offered Morena what turns out to be a fictitious job, works with Livia Marini, a sophisticated, intelligent and seemingly irreproachable woman. The truth, however, tells a different story: although she claims to be a world-renowned talent agent, Livia is in fact head of an international human trafficking organization which generates billions of dollars every year.

Upon arriving in Turkey, Morena is forced to work at a dreary nightclub where Russo, head of security and member of the ring, constantly intimidates young women by threatening to harm their families in Brazil.

Despite being held captive, Morena refuses to accept her fate and decides to fight against the crime that victimized her. Together with her ill-fated companions, she counts on the help of Police Chief Heloísa to take down the ring’s villainous scheme. On top of such difficulties, Morena also has to deal with another challenging mission: to regain Theo’s love and trust. Theo still loves her but has since entered into a new romantic relationship and is determined to forget her. In the end Morena with the help of Mrs heloisa will expose the traffic gangs then morena and Theo will live happily.
