Ava moved to Hong Kong to escape Dublin.  Apathetic, Ava has little desire to connect with her co-workers.

Julian has been in Hong Kong a while longer.  An upper class banker from England, his relationship with Ava is defined by their contrasting views and their wit battles.

Whilst away for work, Julian allows Ava to stay in his flat and during this time, she meets Edith: a lawyer from Hong Kong.  Cambridge-educated, she is diligent, sociable and, since returning to the city, closeted again. When Julian returns, however, Ava must figure out how to balance the two different individuals in her life.
