While working in Hong Kong as a domestic helper, Filipina widow Evelyn (Valerie) met Beth (Angel), a fellow overseas worker from Indonesia. The two women soon found a sister in each other as they became each other’s confidant when Evelyn struggled with his abusive employer and Beth with his deteriorating marriage with a Filipino man.



When Evelyn’s contract ended, Beth decided to go with her to the Philippines and start a new life because she did not want to go back to her family in Indonesia and tell them about her failed marriage.

Evelyn welcomed Beth to her home and accepted her as part of her own family, but after a years, Evelyn decided to work abroad again in Singapore to support the needs of her three growing children. Beth then willingly took up the role of second mother to Evelyn’s kids.

This is just one of the many challenges – including illness – faced by Evelyn and Beth, whose friendship would last until they grew old, proving that friendship goes beyond race and culture.
