To provide for her younger sister, Francesca works for a wealthy woman as a live-in secretary and housekeeper. However, the job title doesn't begin to cover what the job actually entails, and the lady of the house is a callous woman who exploits Francesca's desperation.

It would seem the upper class are too good to speak to lowly servants such as herself!
