Working for a large textile company, Thomas Eichner is in Saigon to negotiate a new joint venture contract. Far away from his homeland, removed from the simmering conflict with his adult son Daniel, the agonizing years of caring for his cancer-stricken wife Maren, and his impending 50th birthday, he meets Vietnamese woman Huong. She is adorable. She is young. She is life.
