Abidjan, 2012. A cruel housemistress hires a naïve servant. The moral harassment is such that the situation may explode soon…
Jezabeline is a wealthy woman living in Abidjan’s best neighbourhood. She asks Alvitesse, “her sister in Christ”, who lives in a popular area, to help her find a maid. Alvitesse introduces Patience, a serious and innocent girl, who is illiterate. Jezabeline says she need no diploma to do the cleaning and Patience is hired.

Jezabeline happens to be a mean person, never giving a break to the poor girl… until the worst happens.
