Mukhabbat, a young and vulnerable immigrant from Uzbekistan, is the figure through which this film explores modern forms of slavery: when circumstances and lack of civil rights are so violent that people work without any pay. In Convenience Store, Mukhabbat works under these abusive conditions. Until the day when despair drives her to action. Images of violence against women that can be considered sensitive.
