Summary This documentary takes an intimate and emotional look into the lives of three Latinas who work as nannies and housekeepers in Los Angeles, three of the nearly 100,000 domestic workers living in that city today. These women's stories vividly reveal how immigrants are redefining their roles, and underscores the vital role they play in many American households cleaning other people's homes and caring for other people's children.
