Synopsis: A maid arrives at a secluded estate to clean. Standing at the door, the Maid receives a text from the owners instructing her that they are not home and that she should not bother cleaning the children’s rooms. She also suddenly has a bloody nose. When she enters the house she discovers a disgusting mess. As she cleans, she begins to feel like she isn’t alone in the house. She continues to clean until she discovers something disturbing in the bathroom. Finally, listening to her intuition, she decides to leave without being paid. But when she gets to her car, she discovers her keys and her phone are missing. Searching through the house to find her phone and keys, the Maid hears sounds that make her uneasy and then discovers her car is no longer in the driveway. The Maid now knows she may be in danger. As she tries to escape, she is confronted by the evil that has been watching her the entire time she has been in the house.

Director's Statement

The Maid is a dark look into the vulnerable situations that domestic working women are forced into, sacrificing their dignity, their safety, and in many cases their lives, in order to make enough money to survive in a world that regards them as replaceable. The film also reflects on the social conditioning of women to second guess their intuition, which oftentimes leads women to ignore and repress the red flags that pop up when danger is lurking.
