A Balinese housemaid works in a home that is not her own. She is the invisible class in Singapore, an unseen population for whom the land is merely transitory. The film is a collaborative effort whose aim is for you to simply look at her—because, after all, choosing what to see and listen remains the most political act we do every day.
