Beneath Hong Kong's glittering facade, is a corps of Filipina domestic helpers working in relative anonymity and for near slave wages. In a beauty pageant like no other in the world, five helpers give themselves makeovers for a day and gleefully reclaim their dignity. Follow a group of expatriate domestic workers in Hong Kong as they prepare to take part in an annual beauty pageant.
