Mei's already hectic schedule becomes chaotic when she finds an elderly deaf man, Saverio, abandoned in her car. With a desperate note from his daughter, Mei's attempts to seek help are thwarted, leaving her responsible for his safety. As she juggles the demands of her impatient boyfriend, Spencer, and her overbearing mother, Mei takes Saverio to a diner, faces social prejudices, and ultimately brings him to the party, causing tension and embarrassment. Through this journey, Mei reevaluates her priorities, builds an unexpected bond with Saverio, and reconnects with her mother, finding solace and kindness in unexpected places.
