Malaysia / Col / 25' 00" / In Mandarin and Tagalog with English

Nia travels far from her home, the Philippines, to Taiwan to work as a family maid. She likes to keep herself in her room with a door separating her from her employers. But this locked door leads to conflicts between them. This is the story of a day of Nia, which also resonates with those who are far away from home.
