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

Serene is the Singaporean employer of Lisa, a domestic worker from the Philippines. When Lisa starts working for her, Serene takes her passport and work permit, and does not allow her to take a day off. Serene is caught up in her own work until she realizes what she is unknowingly teaching her daughter about how to treat others. Serene recognizes that in order for her home to be a happy one, she needs to set a good example for her own child about respecting and appreciating others.

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.
