Chantrea is banned from home by her sons when they discover she has HIV. She accepts her exile, even though supporting her family was the reason she was working as a prostitute. She starts collecting litter to survive, and meets Shrey – an abandoned and lonely girl working as a prostitute to support her little children – who sees Chantrea as a kindred spirit and asks her to become her mother. Two lonely Cambodian women get together and create a new family, supporting and loving each other.
