"Working Girl" is the story of a brilliant school girl who is driven by grave circumstances into the seedy world of prostitution. The story explores the social issues of poverty, prostitution, maternal sacrifice and the hypocrisy of people at higher levels of society. An emotional drama, with a good dose of comic relief, it is set in the dark, underprivileged, backstreets of a picturesque Caribbean island.
Lotus White, an impoverished but intelligent sixteen year old student is preparing for important final exams. Her life becomes a nightmare when she finds out that her mother, Moira White, who works as a prostitute to support the family, has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and has only a few months left to live.
Born into an environment where she had little choice, Moira has worked all her life as a hooker, but she is determined that her young daughter should have a good education and a better life. When she finds out that she is dying she must dedicate all of her waning energy to one last battle to ensure that her lifelong plans for Lotus are not suddenly derailed. Will Lotus be able to maintain her virtue in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds or will she be unable to escape the age old saying: "once a whore always a whore"?
Working Girl was shot on location in Antigua and Barbuda and includes an all-Caribbean cast from Jamaica, Antigua, Guyana and Dominica.
