Set in a weekend of weddings, "An Open Door" looks at the American dream and what it has come to mean to Joey and Sabina as they begin to face the question of the rest of their lives. With no family and few options, they struggle to find a secure future for themselves. Sabina sells drugs with hopes of earning money for college. Joey hopes for a raise and, thereby, Sabina's love. When his efforts repeatedly end in failure, Joey comes to rely more and more on the drugs that Sabina sells to bolster his flagging self-esteem, which ultimately costs Sabina the one true, secure thing in her life.
