Rachel, a Mozambican domestic worker, works for a white couple in Johannesburg. She is forced to make a life-changing decision after her daughter tragically dies whilst under the care of her employers: return to poverty stricken Mozambique or continue working for the people responsible for the death of her child. Things become even more complicated when she finds out that her employers are expecting their first child. The script was written by the director Brett Michael Innes himself and is based on his own novel „Rachel Weeping“.
