In Vienna, he meets Gen (Bea Alonzo) a woman who suffers from a broken heart after finding out that her fiancé was cheating on her. Hoping to reclaim themselves and move on from their painful past, they venture to find love and romance. However, due to certain circumstances, they decide to part ways.
