A man named Ci Tie returns to his hometown. Every step he takes on the once familiar street brings back memories. When night falls, a young lady mistakenly knocks on his hotel room door expecting her online date. She accepts Ci Tie’s invitation and entered his room instead. The attraction between them is intense and soon engages in a flirty banter. Despite her company, Ci Tie is apprehension that he is being surveilled. The following day, he slips onto the second floor of an old house and gazes at the bamboo forest through the window. The memory of a little girl from his childhood evokes. At night, in a bar, he encounters a woman, familiar yet mysterious, playing the Guqin (a seven-stringed zither without bridges).
