Lianqing and Guo meet when they smuggle themselves into Thailand. Lianqing finds a job as a dishwasher in a restaurant while Guo works in a textile factory in the suburb. Guo really likes Lianqing, but Lianqing just focuses on getting the Thai ID card. They are two people with contradictory personalities, however they seem to be bound by fate. When Lianqing gets hold of the ID card, their love is doomed.
