Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Filmed in 1941, the Swedish Vi Hemslaviner was distributed in the U.S. three years later as We Home Toilers. Dagmar Ebbesen stars as Kristiana, a no-nonsense domestic who throws a wealthy Swedish family into turmoil with her take-charge behavior. No one much likes the formidable Kristiana at first, but soon everyone comes to love and appreciate her, and to emulate her hard-working example. The maid and the family are drawn even closer when the family's son marries Kristiana's daughter. Even at a brisk 88 minutes, Vi Hemslaviner is a tad too long for its own good.
