The Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic is now in a very difficult situation.The majority of economic immigrants come to the Czech Republic already with huge debts for intermediation their journey and extreme expectations as well as without any knowledge of local language, environment and the Czech law. All above mentioned often leads to higher vulnerability of these people from the trade with people and exploitation point of view apart from the fact that many of them are thus more or less involuntary put on the verge of the law. The film gives a report about a very oppressive and often even a situation of a personal tragedy of some of them and adds knowledgeable comments from local Vietnamese settlers and competent people, who are on behalf of the Czech Republic in charge of immigrants.
