The second feature by writer-director Vivian Qu is an affecting drama about young women seeking justice in a society that is culturally and legally engineered to deny it to them. Working the graveyard shift at a sleepy maritime motel, teenage Mia (Wen Qi) becomes the sole witness to an assault on two schoolgirls by a middle-aged guest. Fearing the consequences of speaking up, Mia decides to keep quiet — until one of the victims comes to realize that the violence she endured that night is only the beginning of her troubles, and the two girls must band together to find their way out of an ever-tightening net.
