Synopsis by Rebecca Flint Marx
After being dumped by his girlfriend, Lei Haiyang (Pan Yueming) hitches a truck ride to Beijing. Also along for the ride is Yanzi (Li Min), a gaudily dressed runaway. En route to Beijing, Lei falls asleep, and when he wakes up, the truck is parked in some woods while Yanzi is apparently being raped by the truck driver and his companion. A frightened Lei hides in the underbrush where he is noticed only by Yanzi, with whom he exchanges a lingering gaze as she is dragged away. Later, in Beijing, Lei sees a report on television about a female corpse that has been discovered in the woods, and decides to tell the police what he knows. After speaking with the police, he has a chance encounter in the streets with a girl who looks exactly like Yanzi, but who denies that she is the same person. Their meeting catalyzes a friendship that eventually becomes a romance, and slowly reveals what really happened in the woods.
