Two Thai brothers, NAT (19) and TEM (23), take a large loan to come to Northern Sweden as migrant workers in the berry picking industry, hoping to secure a brighter future for themselves back home in Thailand. The problem is, Sweden has been hit by an unexpected heat wave, and there are no berries to pick. Naive younger brother Nat tries to convince his older brother that it’s time to throw in the towel and return back to Thailand, but Tem is stubborn, and refuses to leave Sweden until they’ve secured enough money to pay back their debt. With all other berry pickers having returned home, the pair of brothers only have each other as they set out on a final, desperate quest through the forest, chasing rain, berries, and a chance to return home.
