She is a talented actress with no regular job, so she makes a living from humiliating casual jobs, and He is a promising writer who dreams of writing a bestseller, while earning a living by writing articles and columns. Their income is barely enough to make ends meet, and the dream of a regular job and a successful career is becoming less and less achievable for both of them.
When a child they did not plan and can not afford is born, their relationship becomes even more strained.
