From Chen Kaige, the acclaimed director of “Farewell My Concubine” and “The Emperor and the Assassin”, comes a contemporary Chinese story inspired by today’s digital world. The story begins when a young woman, who after learning of a terminal illness, is caught on video mistreating an elderly bus passenger. The video sparks intense debate on and off the Internet. Personal information and backlash goes viral and her life, and the lives of everyone around her, slip into chaos and media scrutiny. Faced with the choice of exposing her truth, or finding sanctuary in hiding, the balance between privacy and feeding a media frenzy rests solely in her hands.
