K.C.'s life as a nightclub owner is going fine, but McMurphy's life as an alcoholic is getting worse. K.C. eventually decides that raising her two-year-old daughter in Bangkok is not the place for her and sends Trieu An back to Saigon to raise Karen on her own. In a flash forward to May 1975, K.C. has managed to get out of Saigon and returned to Bangkok, only to find the life and nightclub she had there in ruins.
