Two women plying the world’s oldest profession meet on a deserted road. Their employment motivations and experience, however, differ greatly. One knows the street inside out, the other is just discovering the secrets of professional prostitution. This lightly comic film presents women we often notice but rarely understand.
Two prostitutes meet on a deserted road. One is used to the nightly routine but is having trouble coming to terms with the competition – a naïve beginner who is just discovering what the oldest profession is all about. Time spent together gradually reveals that neither has anything to reproach the other for. They both need money, whether to feed their family or to fulfill a lifelong dream. With its comic tone, Bones for Otto doesn’t take aim at women on the streets, presenting them instead as strong individuals whose lives have taken an unexpected turn.
