Description: A beautiful flight attendant is looking for love. A lonely zookeeper is hiding within his animal kingdom from a changing society. A little orphan girl is selling roses on the streets who relies on the kindness of strangers to survive. It's modern-day Saigon, where eight million people are just trying to keep up with the pace. Thuy, a scrappy ten year who old who lives on the outskirts of the city, has no choice in life but to work in her uncle's bamboo factory. That is, until she packs her bags to run away into the city. Now forced to survive on her own, she first sells postcards then flowers on the streets. Lan, the flight attendant, arrives at Ho Chi Minh airport on a five day layover, checking into the same family-run hotel every week. She doesn't tell them that she's having a secret affair with the airline pilot. Hai, a zookeeper living on the park grounds in a shack, is nursing a broken heart after his fiancé left him. In four days, the young runaway will play matchmaker to these lonely hearts in hopes of forming a surrogate family. The only thing that might stop her is city authorities who want her in an orphanage and an overbearing uncle tracking her down in the big city.
