Catalan director Roser Corella narrates the harsh reality of foreign domestic workers in Middle East countries. Combining multiple perspectives, it offers an intimate look at the lives of employers, intermediary agents and maids.

The documentary opens an unprecedented window into a silenced reality and helps us understand the power structures that allow the existence of this evil system of modern slavery. From the legal framework that creates a control structure that promotes abuse and corruption, to the private sphere of the home that perpetuates a patriarchal system discriminating Lebanese women and in turn violating the rights of foreign domestic workers.

A courageous look at a form of contemporary slavery that reflects on the role of women and domestic work in capitalist societies.
