Delilah also has a ten-year old son, Jessie, but that is the only entity the maid and the Reynolds have in common.

What the angry maid aspires to will profoundly change the lives of the Reynolds family, and for her and her son, Jessie. You will want to see what she has up her sleeve, her pink and zebra cuffed, latex, cleaning glove sleeve, that is!
