Set in Prague, while the same story may easily take place in any European or North American city that attracts immigrants and is big enough to shelter stories we never get to know. Song, a 20-year-old Vietnamese, hoped for a better future in Europe. Now, living in a Vietnamese district in Prague, trapped in a marijuana grow house, he has life of a modern slave. Police crushes in. Song runs away, hiding on the rooftop of a condo building in a nearby district and breaks down. Mr. Rypar (75) lives alone. He is fond of the old times, living in a strong opposition to modern world. Rypar goes up on the roof to meet Song standing on the its very edge, crying.
