“You know, Yossi, we couldn’t dress like this in the Philippines… wear earrings, dye my hair, put on make up, lipstick. It’s forbidden.”

In Tel Aviv, Israel, a group of Filipino immigrants work as live-in carers for elderly Orthodox Jewish men. Six days a week, they provide dedicated support to their employers. But on the seventh day, they transform into a homespun, sassy musical drag act. Meet the Paper Dolls!

An extraordinary true story exploring an unlikely collision of cultures and the universal desire to find ‘home’.
