在全球化浪潮襲捲之下,許多第三世界的婦女離鄉背井,隻身飛往繁華國度去從事家庭幫傭,香港是菲律賓女性幫傭密集聚集的地方,主流社會稱她們為「賓妹」或「姐姐」,非常仰賴她們所提供的家務勞動。這些菲律賓女傭絕大多數與雇主同住,工作繁雜,沒有私人空間與時間。唯有每週日,是香港法定外籍勞工的休假日,在這時候,她們才可以離開雇主家去見朋友,吃家鄉菜,參與各式各樣的熱鬧活動,其中包括週日選美。紀錄片追蹤幾位菲律賓女性在香港的幫傭生活,她們平日穿著簡單、低調,盡量以方便工作為主,但到了週日,她們搖身一變,成為妝容亮麗的女人,在姐姐妹妹的加油吶喊中,她們感覺到青春美好的自己......

In the era of globalization, many women from developing countries choose to work abroad as domestic workers in order to support their families back home. Hong Kong imports a large amount of migrant workers from the Philippines. These live-in migrant domestic workers have to work long hours for near slave wages, and can only be “free” on Sundays when they hang out with their fellow countrymen, or, in this case, give themselves makeovers for a day to take part in an annual beauty pageant like no other.
