A thought-provoking gaze of the exploitative working conditions experienced by migrant domestic workers hired under the Kafala system in Lebanon.The film chronicles the dire reality of foreign domestic workers in Middle Eastern countries such as Lebanon. By combining a multitude of perspectives, it offers intimate insights into the private lives of employers, agents and maids.
