Five maids in Brazil's largest city, São Paulo, are observed in this episodic, impressionistic film. Domésticas (Maids) is a funny, yet loving look at the daily lives of this group of Brazilian housemaids: their dreams, sorrows and joys. The movie was based on a stage play and directed by Fernando Meirelles ('City of God', 'The Constant Gardener', 'Blindness') and Nando Olival.
