About the Film

A filmmaker explores his relationship with Yaya, a domestic worker who has sacrificed decades away from her family in order to serve his.

There are 11.5 million domestic workers around the world, many of whom have left their homes for decades in order to send money back home to support their families. Their working conditions are often cast in controversy; some work in slave like conditions and many are treated as second-class citizens.
