A dark tale that took place at the beginning of the 20th century, a story that the Jewish people tried to erase from its history. “The Impures” was the name the Argentinean Jewish community gave to the vicious Jewish pimps who trafficked in thousands of Jewish women from Eastern Europe and sold them into prostitution worldwide.
These women were also considered “impure”, rather than the victims that they were.
The director, along with Sonia Sanchez, a former prostitute and now an activist for women’s rights, will try to discover and hopefully bring to light their repressed and forgotten story.
