Life is always elsewhere.

Hui Ying, a middle-aged woman, finds out her husband is having an affair while working abroad; this news shatters the home she has tried hard to maintain for years.

Yinling returns to Shanghai upon losing her daughter but cannot forget her relationship with an older man in the country she left behind.

The elderly Wen De wants to go to Shanghai's Waibaidu (Garden) Bridge to fulfil a promise he made 40 years ago.

Sufen leaves Singapore, but she makes a pact with her husband to meet him at the bridge 40 years later.

A prostitute is torn between returning home or staying with her Nanyang lover. Where does her heart belong?
