Whores' Glory travels the globe to show how prostitutes really live and work today. The conclusion to internationally renowned director Michael Glawogger's globalization trilogy, following Megacities (1998) and Workingman's Death (2005), Whores' Glorydepicts the skin trade in three economically divergent countries.
In Bangkok, Thailand, women punch a clock and wait for clients in a brightly lit glass box. In the red-light district of Faridpur, Bangladesh, a madam haggles over the price of a teenage girl, and in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, crack-addicted women pray to a deity named Lady Death.
