"The Pleasure of Being Served" official trailer. The original film is 15 minutes, in Tagalog and English, for Mature Audiences. ROSA, an illegal immigrant from the Philippines is a single mother trying to save enough money to bring her young son Richard in to the U.S. She works for HUDSON, a rich, young American as a domestic worker. Part of her job is to juggle logistics between his two girlfriends LYNN, a fellow Filipina, and JEN an American who don't know about each other and visit him on alternating weekends. Having befriended the girls, Rosa becomes morally conflicted and must soon choose between enabling Hudson with his womanizing or accept the generous pay he offers, money that she desperately needs.
A deceptively simple story filled with symbolism and archetypes that touches upon topics such as Sex, Race, White Privilege, Misogyny, Work Ethic, Morality, the Immigrant Experience, and Friendship. This projects aims to not only highlight Filipinos and their culture to a wider, mainstream audience but also provide a glimpse of what it's like to be an undocumented worker working in America.
