Synopsis: 

A sensitive social study of an institution all too often taken for granted, Panama’s own Abner Benaim’s Maids and Bosses uses candid interviews and reenactments to form a critical exploration of a sometimes uneasy and unfair business arrangement—one found in homes all over Latin America.
