The most sympathetic, illuminating study of domestic labor since Roma’ – Hollywood Reporter

Multi-awarded documentary maker Yoon Sung-A offers a thoughtful examination of the training of maids from the Philippines before they are sent off around the world to join the teeming ranks of the nation’s “OFWs” (Overseas Filipino Workers). Overseas gives us a glimpse into the tough realities of a semi-invisible profession and tackles with subtlety the question of domestic slavery in a globalised world.
