New York, 1871. Moth is a young girl from the slums, whose father left years ago and whose mother sells her as a servant. These betrayals lead Moth to a Bowery brothel where diseased men prize virgins, thinking that deflowering… them can heal the incurable. Moth begins to question and observe her world, understanding its harsh realities, but still dreaming of answering to no one but herself. Explicit descriptions of sex and violence, some strong language. 2011.
