The author describes the horrifying experience of Tanya, a Russian woman whose economic situation after the collapse of the Soviet Union left her vulnerable to the promise of employment as a bartender and inexpensive housing in Spain. Finding herself in an abusive situation with prostitution as the only alternative, Project Kesher was enlisted in helping. The author describes Tanya's return home to Russia, including the conditions and prospects there, and the efforts of Project Kesher to assist.
