SYNOPSIS

19 year-old Jiang Meng starts working as a cleaner in the local children’s hospital and encounters a baby born with the same congenital defects she herself suffered from as a child. Faced with a barrage of high risk operations, the father has decided to refuse treatment and take the baby home with him – condemning his daughter to a certain death. Jiang Meng – who herself faced multiple operations with no certainty of survival, and who was herself abandoned by her parents – cannot accept such a decision. She will stop at nothing to rescue this newborn girl who mirrors so closely who she once was.
