Time in this deserted looking flat seems to stand still, even though the pendulum clock is softly ticking. Marina, the Romanian nurse, is sitting in the salon, talking about her work in German households. Unsparingly and down to the tiniest detail, she talks about 24-hour care, controls and humiliations. Marina is an example here. Her voice represents that of many Eastern European female work migrants. A scenic film about exploitation that makes you think.
