Synopsis

Katie and her family leave behind their poverty-stricken small town existence and move to 19th century Amsterdam in the hope of finding a more comfortable life. What they find however is squalor, sexual degradation and disillusion. Katie then turns to prostitution and becomes the mistress of rich banker Hugo (Rutger Hauer), and with his help, she begins making attempts to climb the social ladder.
