"La polaca" explores the history of Jewish prostitutes in Argentina during the 20th century, known as "polacas". This work explores the corruption of the police institution at the time, which deceived, kidnapped, and enslaved immigrant women, forcing them to work in brothels. It also examines how the prevailing macho culture reinforced this underground problem and allowed it to continue unchecked for decades.
