Sushila is deaf and dumb. She sells herself on the street of Suva so she can go on providing for her elderly father. Since the armed coup in 1987, Fiji has become a cauldron of ethnic persecution and human rights abuses. Male authority in Pacific culture is so deeply entrenched that women have no power to say “no” to sexual exploitation. Prostitution is a taboo subject in Fiji and is illegal, but it is the women and not the men who get prosecuted.
