To alleviate the situation, she takes in a young Taiwanese babysitter, Song Fang. On his way home from school, Simon, who is 7 years old, tours her through the neighborhood. Soon, Song Fang and Simon share an imaginary world: a strange red balloon begins to follow them everywhere. While Suzanne is caught up in a court case involving a tenant downstairs, Son Fang becomes even more important in her life.
