Written by Gwyneth Hughes and directed by Lynsey Miller, Doing Money is a shocking true story about slavery in modern Britain. This fact-based one-off drama follows the heart-breaking and compelling story of Ana, a young Romanian woman snatched in broad daylight from a London street, trafficked to Ireland and used as a sex slave in a series of 'pop up’ brothels. Ana’s story offers a tense and thought-provoking thriller, with fascinating insights into the difficulties of policing a form of modern slavery that hides in plain sight. It exposes just how big business "doing money" is.
Gwyneth Hughes says: "I've been deeply affected by listening to Ana's unforgettable story. I've learned a lot from her - a lot I wish I didn't know - about the lives of women bought and sold into modern slavery. But I've also been moved by her courage, her humour, and her will to survive. She is a true heroine."
Doing Money is a 1x90’ produced by Renegade Pictures for BBC Two. It is written by Gwyneth Hughes (The Girl), directed by Lynsey Miller (The Boy With The Top Knot) and produced by Mike Dormer.
