The exploitation of au pair women who come from overseas to work in richer countries becomes the subject of this compassionate and hard-hitting documentary. The film looks at the lives of three Philippine women who work as au pairs in Denmark. Struggling in their new country to earn money for their families back home, the women face social marginalisation and the imminent expiration of their work permits.
