"A Woman Captured" is about Marish, a 52-year-old Hungarian woman who has been serving a family as a housekeeper for a decade, working 20 hours a day without getting paid. Her ID was taken from her by her oppressors and she is not allowed to leave the house without permission. Treated like an animal, she only gets leftovers to eat and no bed to sleep in. Marish spends the days with fear in her heart, but dreaming of getting her life back. The presence of the camera helps her realize she is not completely alone any more. She begins to show signs of trust; after 2 years of shooting, she gathers the courage to reveal her plan: ‘I am going to escape.’ The film follows Marish’s heroic journey back to freedom.
