Ke Fan, a dairy farm technician, is enthralled by his co-worker Qing Ting — whose name means "dragonfly". Hoping to impress her, the young man does a stunt that earns him a jail sentence. When he gets out, he finds the object of his affection has reinvented herself: she has a new appearance and a new online identity. Xu Bing, one of China's best-known artists, has used thousands of hours of genuine surveillance footage to create a melodrama that tells of voyeurism, of a desire for intimacy, and of the secret terror of public life.
