What's the story?

1963. In quiet Lake Charles, Louisiana, the destruction of a Confederate statue might just signal that change is in the air… But, Caroline Thibodeaux finds herself on the wrong side of history. She is a black maid trapped by her fear of confrontation and the need to earn money for her family. Whatever the progress of the civil rights movement elsewhere, things in the Jewish household where she works seem the same – for now at least.

Eight year old Noah Gellman - the little boy Caroline looks after -, heartbroken by the death of his mother and his father’s remarriage, sneaks down to the basement to spend time with Caroline, who he worships. Whilst the basement may seem like a magical place – filled with lively household objects that have a voice of their own - Caroline’s work there is monotonous and badly paid.

However, when Mrs Gellman suggests that Caroline takes spare change from the pockets of Noah’s dirty clothes - the consequences are unexpected and the peace is quickly disrupted.
