Northern China, 1999. A small town is rocked by the discovery of several corpses, but the attempt to catch the alleged murderer results in two officers being killed, another badly injured, and the surviving officer, Zhang Zili, being suspended from duty. Five years later, Zhang reunites with his ex-partner to solve a murder case that seems strangely similar to the one that caused their downfall.
