An Iranian woman is sent to the US so she will not be caught up in the upcoming war and there eventually finds herself forced to work as an au pair for a divorced woman's child in San Francisco. This drama chronicles her life in the states after she learns that she has become a pawn in a custody battle. Soraya came to become a nanny after her live-in relationship with her American boy friend goes bust. Because she has no green card, the au pair job was all she could take. She is hired by the ex-husband of Ellen to take care of their son Alex and to keep an eye on Ellen, who may be agoraphobic. Alex is also unusually quiet. Not realizing that Ted is using her for his own gain, Soraya dutifully reports back to him. Meanwhile, she and Ellen eventually become real friends and unfortunately, it is only after it is too late that Soraya learns the truth about Ted's motives.
