SYNOPSIS

Xiao Mei is missing. Interviews and memories of nine individuals who all had connections with her gradually piece together the puzzle of her life. None of them knows where Xiao Mei has gone out all they want is for her to be all right, so that everything will be all right. These recollections of their dealings with her give a glimpse into the troubled life of a young woman wandering from job to job, apartment to apartment, whose past troubles are clearly haunting her in the present.
