Västerås is a contemplative town in Sweden northwest of Stockholm. Till an awful murder shatters the tranquility. The victim, Eva-Maree, was only 27 when she got brutally stabbed to death by the father of her children during a meeting with the local social services. Despite a history of violence, the father was awarded sole custody of the children after social services learnt that Eva-Maree had previously worked as an escort.

With this documentary Everything's Better than a Hooker, director Ovidie investigates how hostile attitudes towards sex workers and the policies of a supposedly protective state amalgamate, leading the way to a horrific abuse of power.
