Human traffickers have a well-established route: from Burma into Thailand, across the Mekong river at Tachileik, along quiet country roads, passing bribed police checkpoints, and into Bangkok where the illegal migrants are on their own.
Lianqing is one of five illegals who travels this route one summer night of 2013. Along the way a fellow migrant called Guo is kind to her, and their fates later become entwined. Once in Thailand, Lianqing finds “underground” jobs, saves money and finds out where to buy fake identity papers with the hope of making it to Taiwan. But Guo has different ambitions.
