When her husband dies and Nisha is unable to support her beloved daughter, she is forced to make the heartbreaking decision to leave her home in Sri Lanka and try to find work in Cyprus.
Her daughter is left behind with Nisha’s mother as she finds a job as a domestic worker. Nisha sends money back home to her family and her only contact with her daughter is through nightly video calls.
