In this absurd world, everyone is doing things in opposition to their heart, doing jobs they don’t want to do, hiding their passions, and hurting others to bury their pain. Ah Shui (Aqua)and Zhang Niao(Bird), a cross-dressing girl, get tangled up in each other’s worlds because of a green dot of light. This green dot becomes their guide, allowing them to meet in their dreams.
