Happy Endings? @ Columbus Theater
An intriguing exploration of the Asian massage parlor industry in Providence, Rhode Island, where a 25-year-old loophole has made the exchange of sex for money legal--as long as it happens behind closed doors.
As the documentary follows a recent Korean immigrant, "Heather," working to operate her spa, the city's mayor fights to change the law that allows her business a legal existence.
The film includes interviews with Korean women who work in the spas, clients who frequent the spas, politicians from 1980 and today, police, local news footage, radio call-in shows, and "voiced" reviews from internet escort review boards.
