After being kidnapped from her home in Manila, Gabriela is sent via cargo ship to Malaysia and joins a group of thirty girls in the Tent Room Barracks. It is there that Gabriela learns her destiny is not the brothel, but something much different. After completing "the list" she discovers her true mission is something even she is astonished by!
