Norah and Ben are a typical, young Hong Kong couple. However, Norah married Ben against her parents’ wishes and with barely any money of their own, they have no choice but to live in Ben’s rather tyrannical mother’s cramped apartment. But they love each other, and they are basically getting by.
It isn’t until their baby son, Joey, develops severe eczema, and Norah’s mother-in-law inadvertently puts his life in danger, that Norah realizes they cannot go on like this. How much are they willing to give up for their happily ever after ̶ or is a happy ending firmly out of reach for a couple like them?
