節目介紹 / Introduction
香港一座體育館內舉辦了一場特別的選美比賽,舞台上光鮮亮麗的佳麗們,都是在港工作的菲律賓海外勞工。這些「菲傭」平日需要照顧主人的日常起居、處理一切家務、忍受獨處異國的孤獨,而絢麗的選美舞台對於生活在社會底層的她們,便是唯一能夠成為「皇后」的時刻。她們為何會選擇來到香港成為女傭?舞台之下,她們又各自經歷著怎樣的人生?節目訪問三位代表性人物,講述她們的無奈與期盼。

A unique beauty pageant was held in a stadium in Hong Kong. The well-dressed ladies on the stage were all Filipino foreign domestic helpers employed in Hong Kong. These "Filipino Maids" are responsible for taking care of their employers’ daily life and doing all housework, while being alone in a foreign place away from their families. The gorgeous pageant stage is a rare moment for these Filipino helpers, who live as the lowest social class, to turn into a “Queen”. Why did they choose to become a maid in Hong Kong? What have they been through individually off the stage? In this programme, three representative figures were interviewed for their feelings of lacking choices and hopes for the future.
