The film narrates the story of Maila, a young woman who sets off from the rural areas to Luderitz, hoping to land a job at the fish factories there.

Realising that Maila might not get a job it is feared that Maila might follow in the footsteps of her close friend Stella, who just like herself, had years ago arrived in Luderitz to find a job but eventually ended up joining the sex work industry.
