Eun-yi (Cannes Best Actress winner Jeon Do-youn) is hired as a nanny in a lavish mansion by businessman Hoon and his very pregnant wife, Hae-ra. When Eun-yi is seduced by the father of the house, she becomes the unwitting victim in a series of traps laid by the women of the house — Hae-ra, her villainous mother, and their seemingly loyal but increasingly bitter housekeeper. Intensely erotic and fiendishly entertaining, The Housemaid builds to an unforgettable climax as Eun-yi must outwit them and escape their schemes to protect her sanity — and her life — from the vicious family.
