Employed as “maids” and isolated in foreign households, many of these workers find themselves trapped in conditions of great hardship. Based on the real life stories of migrant domestic workers, THEY CALL US MAIDS uses vivid watercolour animation to reveal some disturbing truths about modern slavery.
