Through its unique approach to its protagonist Marish, the film reveals a specific case of slavery, a shocking phenomenon in contemporary Europe.
Fifty-five-year-old Edith, whose owner Eta gave her the new name Marish, has lived with her mistress for 10 years. She does all her housework 12 hours a day, usually at weekends too, and only for food, housing and cigarettes. After dinner, Marish still goes to her job at the factory, but must give her entire pay cheque to Eta. She must not leave the house without permission. From time to time Eta beats her. Although Marish's teenage daughter ran away from the torturer's house several years ago, her mother is too afraid. It is estimated that around 45 million people around the world live in modern slavery. In Hungary alone there are about 22,000. Will Marish remain one of them?
