Help Is on the Way

Synopsis

A busy nanny school in Indramayu, West Java, prepares women to work overseas in countries like Taiwan as domestic workers and caregivers. Every year, hundreds of women like Sukma, Meri, Muji, and Tari are recruited by local agents, who are then remunerated by the schools after successfully seeing their recruits enrolled. While the women bring income that can alleviate family poverty, are they really improving their lives? And at what cost?
