Working Girls tells the story of three women who have nothing in common except for the fact that they are colleagues and cross the border together every day to go to work. In order to live decently on one side of the border, in Roubaix, they prostitute themselves on the other side, in Belgium – this double life is their secret. At the end of the summer, the three women unite in a gesture of solidarity much in the way one would rally the Resistance.
