Open Doors: Screenings
The Road to Mandalay
While immigrating clandestinely in Thailand, the young Burmese woman Liangqing meets Guo, who’s embarking on the same journey. Upon arriving in Bangkok, Liangqing finds a job as a dishwasher in a restaurant, while Guo gets hired in a textile factory. The everyday life of the two illegals is precarious, especially as the youngsters don’t share the same ambitions: whereas Guo wants to earn enough money to return to Burma, Liangqing is willing to do anything to obtain a work visa and escape her circumstances.
