At Casa Xochiquetzal in Mexico City, this is the first time that these women
have had a place they can call home, a place they care about, and take care of.
They are all proud former sex workers who are now doing domestic chores
and tidying their rooms, making a safe space of their own, a home where
they can live together, dance and enjoy their lives with so many stories.
