Dramatically focuses on Haiti's forgotten children and their struggles to survive and educate themselves--in spite of their bondage through the docudrama of a young girl working as a servant to the daughter of a rich family who live among the Haitian elite. Daily domestic chores while the daughter is showered with love and presents, she carries the daughter's books to school gazing through the metal grill to a world she is excluded. A quarter of a million children in Haiti work
as domestic slaves. This is a dramatization of the life of one such child


Note: 250,000 children toil in obscurity in private homes as domestic workers in Haiti. This story reveals the extent to which child domestics are exploited and illustrates how education provides a ray of hope for these children. Determined to improve her life, Asmithe begins to attend a special school for working children, established with support from UNICEF, and learns to
write.
