In a traditional fishing village, most youngsters left to work in the city, leaving the older generation behind. Ren, a widow who lives in the village helps her neighbour, Mrs. Wah, to deliver a gift to her son, Chung in the city. Ren finds out Chung is having a harsh life. She promises Chung not to tell Mrs. Wah about his situation. Back to the island, there is no one with whom Ren can share this secret. The only one she can seek help from in this sleepless night is her deceased husband.
