Titisi is an Indonesian carer who looks after an old lady in Taiwan. The pair are close, even sharing a bed, yet inevitably, there are tensions. The old lady treats Titisi as if her daughter, taking a maternal interest in her life, whilst Titisi is restless, dreaming of romance and love with a man she's just met. As romance turns to heartache, Titisi comes to realise the depth of her bond with the old lady, who is always there for her, despite her failing health.
