There, in the absence of other opportunities, she gets work at a Chinese restaurant for foreigners in order to earn her fare "home." At the restaurant, she meets a couple who take an interest in her case. Furthermore, Fey claims to be the daughter of a Japanese businessman, kidnapped along with his wife years before. The businessman's wife was murdered at that time. Fey is unable to get him to acknowledge her. Perhaps he simply wants to avoid unhappy memories There is something to this story, as the people who have befriended her have reason to know. The man attacked the kidnapper at one time, and then married the criminal's sister. They are the ones who are helping the businessman's daughter. On the other hand, the businessman is aware of the girl's existence but wants to forget all about her and schemes to have them denounced in the press. Meanwhile, Fey's husband, who loves her, gets the grudging support of his village to fly to the Philippines and bring her back.
