Overseas considers the role and reality of modern slavery for the Philippines within in a globalised world.
In the Philippines, many women get deployed abroad to work as domestic workers or nannies. To do so, they leave their own children behind, before throwing themselves into the unknown.
In one of the training centres dedicated to domestic work in the Philippines, a group of trainees are getting ready to face both homesickness and the possible abuses lying ahead. Bordering on fiction, Overseas considers the role and reality of modern slavery for the Philippines within in a globalised world, while emphasising these women’s determination, sisterhood, and the strategies they find to face the ordeals that awaits them in the near future.
