Vivian designs lingerie for prostitutes. Together with her partner Michel, she sells her creations to the girls in Holland’s red-light districts who wear these “bikinis” to attract their clients. Vivian’s long-term relationship with the prostitutes allows the filmmaker Catalina Flórez unusually intimate insights into the mind-set and the life of the girls behind the shop windows.
The film shows the human side to what is otherwise considered a morally desolate existence for these women. It describes the search for quick money, freedom, fun and love, and a life between shop windows and relationships, between morals and compulsion, between beauty and age.
