Four migrant workers live in one basement while waiting to be transferred. They each have different backgrounds and reasons why they have no choice but to work in Taiwan. One is Yanni, a 42-year-old Indonesian mother; another is the handsome 23-year-old Homer, also from Indonesia; and the other two are 25-year-old Jinxiong and the pretty 22-year-old Sile, both from Vietnam.
The four don’t really know each other and were put there temporarily by an intermediary. The two young guys quickly start vying for Sile’s attention, and in an ensuing conflict, Jinxiong accidentally and seriously injures Homer. Yanni and Sile quickly stop Jinxiong and tie him to a chair.
After calming down, a repentant Jinxiong wants to call an ambulance to save Homer, but Yanni and Sile refuse because they are runaway workers who will do anything to ensure they can keep working in Taiwan for the sake of their families. Who will make it out of the basement in the end?
