Hope in Heaven
 


Mila works at Heaven, a little bar on "blowjob alley" in Angeles city, the Philippines. Once the site of the United States Clark Airforce Base, the city is now one of the busiest and sleaziest sex tourist destination in Southeast Asia. Mila lives in tremendous hope that someday a customer will rescue her from Heaven and take her to America.

In the Philippines, prostitution is not just lucrative business—it's an industry. Hope in Heaven, by filmmaker Meredith Ralston, examines the country's sex trade and the young women it traps. Seen through the eyes of two idealistic female students and a male university professor, the film depicts two years of Mila's life and the people who befriend her. The poverty and squalor she lives in and her hope that one day a foreigner will rescue her are both poignant and heartbreaking.

Length: 43 minutes.
