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

Krit is the Thai employer of Fon, a domestic worker from Myanmar. Recently widowed with two young children, Krit puts his needs before Fon, telling her that she can't have a day off to see her sister. Desperate to give her sister money to bring back to her sick mother in Myanmar, Fon travels with Krit's youngest child to her sister's work and is then late to pick up his eldest child from school. After anger comes reflection, and Krit sees that in order for his home to be happy, Fon needs to have a regular day off.

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.
