At this moment in the UK, at least 2,600 trafficked women are being exploited in prostitution. Marginal Voices is a theatre project in London that allows formerly trafficked women to speak in their own words. This film looks at a number of these women as they rebuild their lives, and find their voice through drama.

Later on in London she made a number of films for Channel 4, including Kaiso for July 27, a lyrical documentary about the 1990 attempted coup. She is currently making a film about Viv Albertine, ex-member of the seminal all-women punk band, the Slits.
