In this movie, we follow the journey of a woman named Mai (Phuong Anh Dao) who becomes a single mother.

To make ends meet for her daughter, Mai works as a massage therapist. However, she has to face many obstacles from people around her who often doubt and look down on her.

Mai, a single mother, became an easy target for neighbors who loved to judge and demean her position as a woman.

Although she is often mistreated and humiliated by her surroundings, Mai tries to stay happy and enjoy life with her daughter whom she loves dearly.

One day, Mai meets Sau (Mr. Tran), a man who is known as a playboy. Sau has no steady job and spends most of his time at the club playing the piano and flirting with women.

Sau is a regular customer at the massage parlor where Mai works. He tries to flirt with Mai while she is massaging him. At first, Mai resisted and tried to get away. However, Sau didn’t give up and kept working on Mai, so eventually Mai couldn’t resist.

Since getting to know Mai, Sau has been slowly changing. He stopped being a playboy and started taking his life seriously. In fact, he even considered his mother’s offer to continue the family business.

However, Sau’s mother, who also happens to be a regular at Mai’s massage place, rejects their relationship. Sau’s mother had a strong reason for disapproving of her son’s relationship with Mai.
