Girl Model follows a complex supply chain between Siberia, Japan, and the U.S. within the modelling industry. The story is told through the eyes of a scout and a 13 year-old model.
Despite a lack of obvious similarities between Siberia and Tokyo, a thriving model industry connects these distant regions.
GIRL MODEL follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a thirteen year-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the centre of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career.
After Ashley s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya s optimism about rescuing her family from their financial difficulties grows, her dreams contrast against Ashleys more jaded outlook about the industry s corrosive influence.
