The movie depicts the life and story of Maris who is living as a slave in contemporary Hungary. She is one of those 45 million people who are living in modern slavery today.

Maris has been serving a family in Hungary for 10 years without any salary. She works 20 hours a day and she gets a bed and food in return. She cannot leave the house without a permission and she is deprived of her rights and dignity.

The director, Bernadette Tuza-Ritter spent more than a hundred days with Maris so that she can know her and the circumstances Maris is living in.
