In the Philippines, many women choose to go work abroad as domestic workers or nannies to support their own families. Many feel forced to leave their own children behind and throw themselves into the unknown. In one of the training centers dedicated to domestic work that can be found in the Philippines, a group of trainees are preparing for both homesickness and the potential abuse lying ahead.

Overseas brings to light the question of modern servitude, while emphasizing these women’s determination, their sisterhood, and the strategies they utilize to face the ordeals that await them in the near future.
