Paths of human traffickers lead from Burma along the Mekong river and country roads all the way to Bangkok, where they leave the illegal migrants to their fates. Young Lianging tries to get a job, money, and necessary documents in Bangkok. She meets another immigrant, Ah Guo, and their journeys fatefully intersect. A realistic study of the hard lives of illegal migrants and the clash with reality when they seek the perfect new life in Thailand.
