Nightstop

Nightstop

The young women wake up in the afternoon, just as the trucks start arriving at Montes Namuli Hotel in the border town of Moatize. Now dressed and made up, they go to work, disappearing in the drivers’ trucks. They are aware of the danger of HIV but, to them, sex is a commodity they negotiate. As the night unfolds, chatting, arguing and hustling, the women reveal their individual stories of pregnancy, the search for a husband, unrequited love, violence and resignation.
