Joesy is a an undocumented immigrant from Fiji. She works as a live-in caretaker for 95-year-old Haru, a Japanese American who was sent to an interment camp during World War II. Joesy sends most of her wages back to her family in Fiji. It is part of her culture to care for others, and she forms a deep bond with Haru, although it is not always easy to provide round-the-clock help for someone nearing the end of life.
