Without sufficient work in the countryside, many peasants go to Hanoi to sell their labor force. As day laborers, they wait in the streets of the city until a job is offered them. After particularly arduous work, some decide to return to the countryside to be near their wives and children. The main character, surrounded by his neighbors, recounts the difficulties and the differences in living conditions between the city and the country.
