A Woman Captured
A chance encounter with a woman who boasted about keeping unpaid domestic servants brought director Bernadett Tuza-Ritter to a surprising discovery: slavery is alive and well today, in the heart of Europe. Marish, the film's protagonist, has spent the last eleven years as the slave of a family that mistreats and abuses her, and even confiscates the money she earns working part-time at a factory. Her “employer” doesn’t even bother to hide, demanding (and receiving) payment for allowing the director to meet Marish and film her. But that meeting turns out to be fateful. The special intimacy created between the two women leads them to cooperate in a move that will change their lives.
