Produced by: David Swatling of Radio Netherlands

Ten years ago, two young women were studying law -- one in The Netherlands and the other in Latvia. Years later their lives would intersect. Ruth Hopkins, researching a European Commission report on the trafficking of women, interviewed Anna Ziverte -- a victim who had been forced to work as a prostitute in Rotterdam.

The number of women trafficked and exploited in the sex trade annually in Europe is estimated to be as high as 700,000. Nearly a third are trafficked from Eastern and Central European countries. Ziverte escaped her traffickers only to find herself entangled in another nightmare -- a Dutch system where victims are perceived as illegal immigrants. Taking matters into her own hands, she founded a support group called Atalantas, inspired by the swift-footed goddess from Greek mythology who could outrun any man.

Producer David Swatling follows the journey of two women trying to find the light at the end of a seemingly endless tunnel.
