Kristina brainwashes Selina, convincing her to leave her family and education behind to work as a housemaid in order to support her family, her sickly father and her younger step-brother and sister. Kristina is simply looking to make some easy money from Selina. All the drama unravels when Selina falls for the youngest son of the house where she is deployed to work.
