The middle-class Lim family has not yet felt the economic squeeze like some of the neighbours during the 1997 Asian financial crisis in Singapore. Unruly high school student Jiale Lim (Koh Jia Ler) and his parents (Tian Wen Chen, Yann Yann Yeo) are preparing to welcome a new addition to the family and in anticipation, the Lims hire a Filipino immigrant called Teresa (Angeli Bayani) as their live-in maid and nanny. Teresa is an outsider in a strange city and she initially clashes with Jiale, whose unruly behaviour proves difficult to control. Gradually, the nanny and her teenage ward find common ground and they build an unexpected friendship, which helps to unite the family. However, when economic reality finally bites for the Lims, they face agonising choices regarding Teresa's employment and her position of power and influence in the household.
