Episode: Getting to Know "the Help" in One Indian Household
Have you ever dreamed of being waited on hand and foot? For the past six years, Lakshmi has been doing just that for her employers -- virtually unnoticed. That is, until one of Lakshmi's employers begins to film her daily life on the job in Mumbai, India. In a deeply personal portrait, the film takes a hard look at the Indian caste system, gender, and class relations.• Visit the Getting to Know "the Help" in One Indian Household webpage
