In the 1960s Carmen, who was Spanish, worked as a live-in maid for 8-year-old Louis’s wealthy family. One day Louis discovered that she wasn’t there anymore. Fifty years later, Louis goes in search of her. He comes upon the track of the mysterious Madame Billault, who ran a sort of employment agency in Ghent for hundreds of Spanish domestic workers.
