In the countryside, the days were always the same, which led Súóng to go to Saigon, the city full of people and infinite possibilities. But when she gets a job at a small eatery, with two other girls — who also live there, together — she gets into a passive routine. Nothing seems to exist outside of the restaurant. But her inner life isn’t so carefree and there is a battle inside her that she will have to resolve.
