Gulnar thought her dreams had come true. After years of imagining her line of work would prevent her from getting married, but at the same time wishing a wealthy business man would meet and fall in love with her – just like in “Pretty Woman” – it finally happened. Blake was one of Gulnar’s regular clients, but it turned out he didn’t just like her for her body, and eventually, he proposed.

But Blake was not quite a rich businessman, and he wants nothing less than the biggest and best wedding money could buy. So he now sends Gulnar out every night to earn the money for which to pay for it.

We hope that Gulnar will get the wedding, and the marriage and family life she dreams of, but we fear for her too. Too many of her colleagues were lured into the sex industry by men posing as boyfriends so that they could make profit from them – with Blake now collecting Gulnar’s salary it looks like her ending might be very different from Vivian’s.
