synopsis

A young woman in love embarks on a dangerous journey to find a man she met on the internet and doesn't know much about. Her stubbornness goes so far that the director is forced to stop her. The film thus opens up questions about the author's responsibility for the subjects she is following in documentary filmmaking.

“Bingru met Cai Jinlong, a guy from Guangdong, on QQ blog.”
