Recommend this film

Yogyakarta, Indonesia, 2009. In a recruitment Centre, women undergo training to become maids. They learn how to use a microwave, how to be polite, their future employer’s language and stamina at work. Tens of thousands of them leave each month for Asia or the Middle East in the hope of bringing a better salary back home. But hope sometimes turns into a nightmare: overworked and mistreated, they are reduced to a state of slavery. Their stories lie behind the domestic function for which they were trained, revealed in looks, words, laughter and shocking silence.
