Storyline

Sarah Gonzales, a grade school English teacher, joins the 150,000 Pinoy OFWs working in the United Kingdom to support her husband, Teddy Gonzales, in making a better living for their family. More than just a chronicle of the Filipino experience working as nurses and caregivers in the U.K., this story also charts Sarah's journey to self-discovery - from a submissive wife who makes sacrifices to make way for her Teddy's aspirations to an empowered woman who finds dignity and pride in a humbling job as a caregiver in London.

Not bad and not so melodramatic
2 May 2011 | by (Seoul, Korea) – See all my reviews

I saw this on DVD and liked it. It's yet another movie about the overseas Filipino worker, this time a schoolteacher who trains to be a nurse to work in England. What I liked about this movie was that it didn't deteriorate into melodrama and tear-fest conditions like so many Philippine movies do, but well, I have to say Sharon Cuneta's character probably would not have gotten a handsome husband as depicted in the film.

I liked how the movie just presented life in England for OFWs, nurses in particular, and that it didn't spiral into crying drama and such. I'm sure many Filipinos can sympathize with the characters in the movie. It's good Filipinos have their sense of happiness and humor in such a depressing country like the U.K.

If you enjoyed this movie, please check out "Anak" with Vilma Santos but please avoid "Dubai" with Claudine Baretto.
