The film tells the story of Rasya (Maxime Bouttier), a diligent student who follows the path and plan laid out by his father, Tama (Ikang Fawzi), a successful career official. Anything that is outside of his father's grand plan is not a priority, and because of that he keeps avoiding the approach of Maria (Stella Cornelia), a younger classmate who likes him. One day, Hendra (Julian Jacob), Rasya's friend, drags him to a brothel. While waiting for Hendra, he meets Eva (Whulandary Herman), one of the prostitutes there. Eva's outspoken and always \"live for today\" personality sparks Rasya's interest. The following days, Rasya deliberately visits just to chat with Eva. After graduating from high school, Rasya leaves all his plans. He wants, at least for a while, to live for today. He will wander, broaden his horizons, and try to find his own way.
Rasya falls in love with Eva, who becomes a prostitute because she has no money to pay for her mother's medical treatment. Rasya tries his best to collect money to help Eva's mother recover. Rasya also pulls Eva out of the valley of disgrace, and finds her a more humane job. When love begins to weave beautifully, Eva has to face the reality that she has a disease as a result of her dark past. She decides to leave until the last moment they meet at the end of her breath.
