In 2016, Mary Kibwana, who worked as maid in Jordan, returned to Kenya with 70% of her body burned. Kibwana is one of many women in Africa and Asia trapped in the Middle East's Kafala System, a set of law governing migrant labor that binds them to their employers. The film gives unprecedented access to the inner workings the system, and the horrific reality faced by thousands of women each day.
