The story follows a Chinese woman who finds herself in Brussels; the heart of Europe, in the early nineties. She arrives at the family of the man she loves; who lived with her in China, but died in an accident. She comes to bring his ashes, not sure how this new family will respond to her at all. Her past, the culture she grew up with, her ideas about her future are all things she took with her as well. It’s the strength she found in his promise and a new hope that drives her to build a new future. Luckily, she doesn’t stand alone in this. She finds a friend in another Chinese woman who found her place in the city.
