with his mentally-disabled son Yurik. One day while treating a patient, Amos meets an illegal Thai immigrant named Bena. Rather than turn her in, Amos brings the quiet young womanhome. Bena helps Amos care for Yurik and she gradually becomes part of their household.
Mutual affection begins to develop between Amos and Bena, which Yurik has a hard time
