Saving Dolma reflects on the lives of female migrant domestic workers, one of the most vulnerable groups of workers, and the issues they face in the Middle East.

The story of Dolma Sherpa, a Nepali domestic worker accused of killing a Filipino co-worker and sentenced to death, opens a window for advocates, migrant workers, and families to share their experiences of resilience and struggle in the face of severe challenges that migrant workers endure.
