To save her dying sister and help her struggling family, young Filipina Dalisay (Madeline Ortaliz) signs up to be a mail-order bride in this moving drama. She travels to New York to marry taxi driver and ex-merchant marine Dean (John Michael Bolger), a tired soul searching for stability and companionship. But Dalisay's hope to pay off her family's debt evaporates when she learns that her financially unstable hubby doesn't want his wife to work.
