Malaysia, now. The 23-year-old Tuck Chai is dating Ying, a not-yet 16 schoolgirl. Their parents know nothing about the illicit relationship until Ying's mother and father find birth-control pills in her room. Tuck Chai's mother drinks too much but she would do anything for her son. She demeans herself by turning to her ex-husband for a loan to save Tuck Chai from the accusation in the statutory rape for having sex with a minor. Before long, several lives are ruined and the police are involved after all.
