In the dark roads of Chengdu, Xiao Cheng, scared of the consequences, send a message asking for help to his friend Fiona (Wen Sirui). She comes with her girlfriend Lola (Celia Yu Yunmeng), that doesn't want to get involve with the problem. The first one finds a solution to hide the body, but when they return to the apartment, they found the unexpected. But, what really happen?
