Open Doors: Thailand

Krit is the Thai employer of Fon, a domestic worker from Myanmar. Recently widowed with two young children and a demanding job, Krit puts his needs before Fon’s, 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 workplace and subsequently is late to pick up his eldest child from school. After anger comes reflection, and Krit recognizes that in order for his home to be a happy one, Fon needs to have personal time and that means a regular day off.
