Making a foreign land home somehow is less hard than staying there legally as a third-world citizen, freshly graduated from school, 26-year-old Chinese sculptor Yiou has to leave if she couldn’t figure out a purpose of staying. At this very moment, she falls in love, but with someone who is leaving. On the other hand, a young Slovak doctor Greta has fallen in love with Yiou and is ready to stand in for the spouse visa which could help Yiou to stay. This time, freedom and love are standing on the opposite sides.
