Lotte, a modern-day English tourist who repairs dolls, is on a Cultural Tour for Singles in Troy when she encounters Andromache, fleeing the rape of her city. An American soldier captures Andromache; Lotte tries to intervene, only to be captured herself.
Meanwhile, two American soldiers kidnap a young virgin (Polly X, who is Hecuba's daughter) to drink beer and party with the tigers at the Baghdad Zoo. When the prison camp is torched, the women are enslaved but Lotte is rescued by the British Embassy. Lotte's life returns to normal-- until a revenge-obsessed Hecuba claws her way up through the centuries to Lotte's doll-shop, in search of her murdered children’s bodies.
A car-crash adaptation of Euripides’ 'Trojan Women', where past and present times violently collide into one another.
