See Margaret Qualley and Andie MacDowell in New Maid Trailer

What could be more powerful than the love of a mother? Nothing, what is it.

On Tuesday, September 14, Netflix released the first trailer for its inspiring new drama, Housemaid, which puts Margaret qualley in the spotlight. In the series, which premieres on October 1, Qualley plays single mom Alex, who tries to rebuild her life by becoming a housekeeper after escaping her abusive boyfriend Sean (Nick robinson).

“I’m Alex,” notes the mother of one child in a support group. “I’m trying to figure out how I got here.

The resilient mother reveals that she doesn’t have much of a support system. “My mom is undiagnosed bipolar, and she’s MIA right now,” she continues. “I went to college. I wanted to be a writer, but I got pregnant. Now I’m a single mother.”

Refusing to succumb to this situation, Alex takes on the worst cleaning jobs. (Warning: if you don’t like cockroaches, this trailer isn’t for you.)

“I don’t think I can do that,” she said after throwing up during disgusting labor.

“So quit,” advises her boss.

“I can’t stop,” she replies. “I live for my daughter.”
