Kathy Bolkovac is a Nebraskan police officer who takes a job working for the United Nations as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she unveils a different reality: corruption and cover-up amidst a world of UN contingents, private contractors, and diplomatic doubletalk. Interwoven with Kathy’s story, is the story of two Ukrainian girls who are duped by a relative into traveling West in search of work, but are kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery in Bosnia.
