This film reveals the dire reality of foreign domestic workers in Middle Eastern countries such as Lebanon. The documentary offers an intimate insight into the private lives of employers, agents and maids. Laws create a legal structure of inequality and power imbalance that encourages corruption and abuse. Sexism and the patriarchal system discriminate against Lebanese women in turn perpetuates abuse against foreign domestic workers. Exposing a modern form of slavery, the film reflects on the role of women and domestic worker in capitalist societies.
