Nohemí was taken from her home when she was just a girl, and sent to work as a domestic employee for an upper-middle class family in Bogota. This is her story: how she survived years of abuse, neglect, and misfortune; and how, decades later, an act of solidarity and bravery helped bring her some measure of justice. This piece was produced by Camila Segura.
