Meet four women who get dirty for a living. Kate has been working in meat processing plants since she was in High School. When she went away to college, she began working at a mom and pop shop, where she quickly became the best skinner and trimmer they had ever seen. Now a married mother, Kate dreams of one day buying that store. Denise, a struggling divorcee, decided to put her childhood farm experience to use, working as a milkmaid and midwife, delivering five to six calves each day. Eileen is the head caretaker at the primate sanctuary in Kentucky, where abandoned, confined or wounded primates are rehabilitated. Yvette, who spent years working odd jobs, found her niche at Emergency Response, a company that specializes in cleaning crime scenes. Yvette started there as a secretary, and soon found herself on the scene, where she feels her help is essential in the coping process of victims and their families.
