Description
Director Baby Ruth Villarama follows the lives of five Filipino domestic workers in Hong Kong as they juggle between the harsh realities of their working situation and the sense of empowerment they get from joining beauty pageants on Sundays. The city where the characters hang out with their fellow expatriates to celebrate their favorite day off is a vision of human anguish veiled in pageantry.
