Eleven-year-old Linh shows great grace under pressure. When her mother, who’s raising her kids on her own, has to return unexpectedly to Vietnam, Linh looks after her little sister Tien and the family restaurant on her own.

When Pauline blackmails the Vietnamese sisters into starting a gang with her, the three girls set off on a daring adventure.
