Life was getting too busy and overwhelming for John and May, which is why they decided to hire a domestic worker to care for their daughter.
Ani, a domestic worker from Indonesia, alleviated their workload by taking over the errands and chores. Ani was a natural with their daughter and a hard worker.
But as time passed, they noticed a decline in her performance. Ani seemed distracted, spaced out, and was neglecting her chores.
One night, they came home from work to find their daughter missing from her bed.
In a fit of panic, they barged into Ani’s room, only to learn the reason behind her behaviour.
The two mothers finally saw eye to eye. Ani loved her child, just as May loved her daughter.
