Sukhin’s life runs like clockwork. One day, he takes a different route home and encounters a woman living in a cardboard house who recognises him. Their meeting makes him question the life he has built for himself and turns his world upside-down. Sukhin is a thirty-five-year-old teacher who lives alone. His life consists of reading, working and visiting his parents to rearrange his piles of “collectibles”. He has only one friend, another teacher who has managed to force Sukhin into a friendship by sheer doggedness. While on an errand one afternoon in Chinatown, he encounters a homeless person who recognises him. This chance reunion turns Sukhin’s well-planned life upside down, and the pair learns about love and sacrifice over their shared fondness for cake.
