A college boy picks his mother up for a wedding banquet in downtown Kuala Lumpur. In the car ride jammed with typical highway traffic and accidental AC breakdown, they are stuck in a confined space and conversation, stinging each other with clashing values and overbearing love.
Their tension eases down as they dine in an open space restaurant after an exhausting day, finally letting down their judgements, and enjoy a quiet family meal.
