A thought-provoking gaze of the exploitative migration and the terrible dilemmas facing women who must choose between earning and caring their own children. The film drives the realities underlying the domestic work and care solutions found by Middle Eastern countries, as Lebanon. These solutions do not address continuing gender inequalities, and all too often rest on the exploitation and even dehumanization of the women who actually provide the care of children and do all the domestic work in the houses of middle and upper-class families.
