An undocumented Tibetan immigrant and a reckless Dominican-American truck driver forge a relationship that helps them overcome the adversities and heartbreak that life brings.
Dechen, an undocumented worker, and Oscar, a reckless truck driver plagued by addiction, are immigrants to the United States who arrived under traumatic circumstances. Oscar teaches Dechen to drive, and Dechen provides companionship and support to Oscar through his failing health. Their relationship develops and deepens across identity differences due to reciprocity and their shared love of food.
