“Working Girl” is the story of a brilliant school girl who is driven by grave circumstances into the seedy world of prostitution. The tale explores the social issues of poverty, prostitution, maternal sacrifice and the hypocrisy of some men who by their reckless and irresponsible behavior help to ensure that the world’s oldest profession continues to flourish. Lotus White is an underprivileged but intelligent sixteen year old student who becomes a schoolgirl by day and a hooker at night after she finds out that her mother has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and has only a few months left to live. Her mother meanwhile, has worked all her life as a prostitute 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 fight to ensure that her lifelong plans for Lotus are not suddenly ruined. Will Lotus be able to maintain her virtue in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds or will she be unable to escape the vicious cycle of poverty and fall prey to the old saying: 'once a whore always a whore'?
“Working Girl” is an intense emotional drama with a good dose of comic relief.
