In sprawling Chongqing, the quiet life of a divorced taxi driver erupts after he gives a ride to a mysterious woman coming home after two decades. Reigniting his sexual desires, she also releases his suppressed angst about his paralyzed mother and rebellious gay son. Shrouded in dark tunnels and deep fog, he sees no light ahead. This mesmerizing drama, at once gloomily real and luminously surreal, evokes a time when dreams are lost, and no hope can be found.
