Summary An intimate look at the lives of migrant domestic workers in Singapore and captures the hardships that confront them in their struggle to financially get ahead as well as the perseverance of their sacrifice to support their families. Not unlike other domestic workers, Marie leaves behind her children and unemployed husband for Singapore in hopes of earning sufficient savings to eventually open a business in the Philippines. Yet, one hurdle after another confronts her, including the deduction of eight months of her wages to cover the entire cost of her migration to Singapore and the squandering of her earnings by a womanizing husband. Yet, Marie perseveres, moonlighting at a bar in the evenings, acquiring skills in weekend classes at the local church, and taking business management courses for domestic workers. But does she eventually prevail?.
