Storyline

A deceptively simple story filled with symbols and archetypes that touches upon topics such as Race, Sex, White Privilege, the Immigrant Experience, Work Ethic, Materialism, Friendship and Morality. ROSA, an illegal immigrant from the Philippines is a single mother trying to save enough money to bring her young son Richard in to the U.S. She works for HUDSON, a rich, young American as a domestic worker. Part of her job is to juggle logistics between his two girlfriends LYNN, a fellow Filipina, and JEN an American who don't know about each other and visit him on alternating weekends. Having befriended the girls, Rosa becomes morally conflicted and must soon choose between enabling Hudson with his womanizing or accept the generous pay he offers, money that she desperately needs.
