Like many other Filipino women in the mid-1990s, Teresa has come to Singapore in search of a better life. A couple of working parents hire her to care for their three children and everyone in the family finds themselves struggling to adapt to the presence of this stranger, which further threatens their already strained relationship. Still, Teresa and young son Jiale, a somewhat troublesome boy, soon form a bond. Their unique connection continues to develop and soon she becomes an unspoken part of the family. But when financial circumstances resulting from the recession mean that the family can no longer afford her, the children struggle to accept they might never see Teresa again.
