He keeps her spirit alive by carefully adhering to her traditional way of making them, like a prayer, with much care and focus.

The police have gone from daily customers to aggressors. The world around him is also changing, and he can only count his clients by hand. As his battle on the street gets harder, he misses his wife more.

How long can he keep doing what he loves, the last thing that connects him to the woman that he loved?
