Summer arrived at the peaceful countryside quietly. The hot wind blew across the surface of river and the forest. Under the bright sunlight, sound of cicadas was echoing through the sky. Zhaodi was a girl who suffered from the guilt of not saving her mother who committed suicide due to sexual assault. Therefore, seeing another girl Ayun was being sexually assaulted, Zhaodi saved her without hesitation. The two girls became good friends, leaving many beautiful memories together. However, on that day in the forest, their memories turned into nightmares.
