‘Now that I’m homeless, I set my own rules, so I can go where I want to go, whenever I want to.’ The adventurous Maye thinks she has put her life well on track, but reality turns out different.
Don’t sleep too long (and not in the street altogether), don’t beg, take a daily shower and especially: never give up. With a set of self-formulated rules, homeless Maye hopes she can keep leading her free, adventurous life. Without the burden of a house, friends and the yoke of her traditional Chinese parents, she waltzes through Rotterdam, seizing both the day and the night. But when she loses her few possessions, her utopian house of cards collapses and reality turns out to be even harsher than she expected.
