Au pair

59 min.DK/DocumentaryFilm school films

In the film we meet 3 young philippine women with 3 different reasons to leave home - each with her own dream for the future. The three stories interchange into a singular story of a complex world, in which it is difficult to tell who is exploiting whom - and where money and emotions are corrupting each other.
