Sawa works as a caretaker. One day she gets involved into unexpected events which have her lose her job and money. Not having a house to live and money to spend, she begins to hunt for her “clients” in the street, suggesting to take care of them as a sleep-in caretaker. She targets old men who seem having problems in their lives. At first they get confused by Sawa’s aggressive attitude and lots of energy, but gradually let her into their lives, and their “almost dead” lives start to shine again…
