The relationship between Duyen and Cam, two young women, is complicated. Duyen is marrying a taxi driver without noticing the deep feelings that Cam has for her. Cam hides her love and jealousy, and subtly pushed Duyen into the arms of an experienced and seductive man, Tho. With him, Duyen discovers for the first time her femininity, hidden until then by the constraints of traditional morality.
