People from Moldavia risks their savings and their lives in the hope to become illegal immigrants abroad. The film, in the course of more than one decade of filming, narrates the stories of three women who work illegally in Austria and Italy as domestic servants. Workers like them are forced to separate form their children and families for several years, have no rights to receive proper medical treatment and run the risk of being expatriated. These women’s stories are distressing: they barely know their children, but would give it all up in the hope to give them a better future. Once they are back home, their relatives realize that they should never have let them leave in the first place.
