Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

As the gaokao, a marathon two-day examination period for high school students, draws nearer, students across China prepare for the test that will determine the course of their life paths after high school. The narrative hones in on introverted Nian (Dongyu Zhou) who studies endlessly, yet finds herself embroiled in classroom drama and bullying in the wake of a peer's suicide. She then crosses paths with Bei (Jackson Yee), a petty criminal, and the two agree to a tenuous bargain. Directed by Kwok Cheung Tsang.
