In the Philippines, women get deployed abroad to work as domestic caretakers or nannies. In a learning center several candidates prepare themselves in role playing exercises. How to react if employer insults you? How to deal with homesickness? Where to seek help if employer harasses you? The film shines a light on modern slavery in today's world, while emphasizing the courage and determination of these women who develop strategies to overcome all obstacles that they will have to face in the near future. 

"Director Sung-a Yoon allows viewers to peak into the everyday life of several women preparing for an overseas employment. This routine incites both - astonishment and great empathy. While observing the dynamics between the women and their growing friendship and support, the boundary between documentary and fiction disappears." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
