This film tells the moving story of a Cambodian-Chinese mother mourning the untimely death of her son. Her world is disrupted further by the appearance of his ex-partner and we observe their difficulties in trying to connect with one another without a common language. Through a translator they piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly and realise that while they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief.
