To be enslaved in Europe today seems impossible. Yet this is the case for millions of people. Marish, 52, has been held captive by a family for 10 years and is forced to work without being paid. She has forgotten what freedom looks like and has lost all desire to flee. Drawing courage from the director's presence, she decides to escape the unbearable oppression and regain her freedom. This film tells the fascinating story of a human being regaining her dignity and her faith in life.
