Synopsis:
Sarah (Sharon Cuneta), a grade school English teacher, joins the 150,000 Pinoy OFWs working in the United Kingdom to support her husband, Teddy, in making a better living for their family. More than just a chronicle of the Filipinos’ experience working as nurses and caregivers in the UK, 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.

The story begins as Sarah says goodbye to her familiar world. After finishing an arduous course in caregiving, she bids farewell to the Grade 5 classroom, where she teaches English. She buys a winter coat for her son Paulo and promises that he would use it once she can afford to take him to London. In typical Pinoy fashion, she shares tearful goodbyes with her whole family at the airport when she finally leaves for the United Kingdom.

I miss quality films like this, Julia.

Not because of Sharon doing another great acting, not Chito Rono doing making another milestone in Philippine cinema, not Star Cinema for lasting 15 years even at the height of piracy, but the courage of every film maker and artist who always give their best.

Today's generation must still thank at least one good picture a year.

I miss my younger days watching good films every week, every Thursday that is.

I wish pirates and sponsors of the upcoming pirated version of this film will drop dead and I mean that.
