Although Haifeng comes to Beijing for accompanying Yanyan, he is also secretly dating his ex-girlfriend since he is in Beijing. Haifeng began to worry that Yanyan may be cheating on him. There was always a sense of distrust between them. One night, Zhang and Yanyan have sex behind Haifeng’s back, and on the same night Haifeng and his ex-girlfriend hold hands on a taxi. Haifeng is surprised when he sees Yanyan and her professor walking out of school, but he doesn’t say a word. He just runs past them.

Director's statement

I saw the “bubble” emotion in urban life, and there were so many absurd love, family ties, and friendship when I grew up. What is the reason behind this? Is it the rapid development of the times or lack of culture? I want to make a film to explore this issue.
