Open Doors is a three-part video series featuring the struggles of migrant domestic workers in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

John and May are the Malaysian employers of Ani, a domestic worker from Indonesia. With hectic work schedules and an active young daughter, they forget to buy Ani the mobile phone they promised her when she started her job. Ani, anxious to speak to her young son in Indonesia, becomes distracted and her work begins to suffer. Annoyance becomes understanding when John and May realize that in order for their home to be a happy one, Ani needs to be able to communicate with her son regularly.

This drama can be used to educate audiences on the experiences and treatment of domestic workers and encourage them to learn, share and take action.
