In order to avoid her grandpa’s funeral, Anqi takes a detour to revisit the places dear to her—places hidden far away from the metropolis where time feels stagnant. As director TANG Ziyu follows her close childhood friend’s travels, Anqi contemplates the roles three generations of men play in her life. Searching for a cure on a lamenting and lyrical journey, Anqi tells a coming-of-age story that weaves together death, relationships, and love.
