Ouyang Tianqing and Kuang Caiyun are two young women who are strangers. They depart from the Pearl River Delta on the same boat to cross the ocean to the unfamiliar Nanyang region in search of a better life.
One becomes a domestic helper, a “Ma Jie”, and the other a “Samsui woman” at the construction site. Hardship awaits and they lead a life of abduction, imprisonment, war, betrayal and emotional suffering.
However, they refuse to give up hope, sharing laughter and tears as they encounter various life experiences and weather through the storms together.
