Innocent and vulnerable with the strong conviction that despite the adverse conditions they live in they can have a better future; they will be tricked and used by people with no scruples who will take them deep into a network of prostitution which will later be impossible for them to escape from. They’ve never seen each other but they will become friends, forced into it when they meet at a point of no return and live the worse nightmare a woman can have: to be a victim of Human Trafficking.

In the middle of their struggle to escape from the abyss, Ana, Frida and Seleni will try to find in love the key to get out of the dreadful conditions and torture they’ve experienced and with them, audiences will walk through the path that will either make them stronger or end up destroying them. Broken Promises is a series that realistically and bluntly reveals the real drama of thousands of people living in the midst of a multimillion dollar business. It will show the whole world how these trafficking networks operate, the abuse of those who suffer and the drama of the family members who try at all costs to find and rescue them.
