The song was released coupled with a touching video in which Anh Tú plays the role of a doctor who is in the fight with COVID-19 and LyLy takes the role of a doctor’s wife. It is a tough time for their family since he can’t come home for months.
The MV is built as a conversation through a phone call between a doctor and his wife during his break time at the hospital. They talk about the tiredness that the doctor must endure and their nostalgia that they are so close yet so far. They give each other the tender care and feelings, they share the difficulties and support for the mental strength through the phone.

The MV is opened with the notification to install the application called “Bluezone” which is a product of the Vietnamese Ministry of Health. Bluezone alerts people if they had close contact with people who have tested positive for COVID-19. It’s such a meaningful action to integrate the practical message to people through LyLy‘s work of art.
The Vpop song is dedicated to all doctors and support their spirit to go through this time with the gentle ballad melody. The soft and sympathetic tune at the beginning of the song is an empathy with the difficulty of the medical staff and their family and the melody at the end of the song is strong and upbeat which has the benefits to encourage people to try to fight against the pandemic.
