Marion leads an unconventional life. While she secretly dreams of becoming an actress, she finds herself being stuck behind the curtains of a puppet theatre.
In order to pay the bills and financially support her single mother, she chooses a highly stigmatised profession: sex work.
Battling prejudices and biases her motto is: “Smile, unless a man tells you to do so.”
Unsolicited catcalls, humiliation, harassment.
Girls and women predestined and expected to be polite, honourable, innocent and smiling.
Being able to choose one’s profession freely means: “Her body, her choice.”
