Part of Storyville, this programme follows the harrowing story of a woman kept as a slave for ten years.

Marish, 52, works 12-hours a day in a factory in her native Hungary, but then she has to give her wages to another woman for whom Marish cooks, cleans, and is abused by. She only eats scarps and is regularly beaten up. This film, made over two years, sees Marish planning her escape.

A Woman Captured is on BBC Four at 22.00.
