American South, in the court 1960-ies. Skeeter has just graduated from University and returns home to the sleepy town of Jackson, where nothing ever happens. She dreams of becoming a writer, to break into the big world. But for a decent girl from the South ought not to indulge in such silly illusions, decent girl should marry and petition in the house. Wise Aibileen thirty years older than Skeeter, she ministered in the homes of white all his life, nursed seventeen children long ago have nothing to expect from life, because her heart is broken after the death of their only son. Minny about the best cook in all of Jackson, and she's the saucy maid in the city. And sharp tongue has repeatedly served her a disservice. In one place Minnie never long delayed. But Minnie is better not to communicate even the most arrogant white lady. Two black maids and a white inexperienced girl have one thing in common — a heightened sense of justice and desire to somehow change things. If these three are to confront the whole world? Will they be able to survive in this struggle?
