A young couple work on the river Han at Da Nang every day as fisher people. They had to leave the countryside and their children because the river fishing there was no longer profitable. They only go back home rarely and briefly get to see their three children who are being brought up by their grandmother. But they dream of just one thing: to be able to live together as a family and to help their children succeed with their studies. But to do that, you need money!
