A woman “Meizi” with her child who has lived in domestic violence for years travels back to her past wedding with her abusive husband while facing the decision to change her marriage.

Under the flawless veil of marriage and a blissful Chinese family, Meizi lives in an unknown nightmare of fear. Meizi is trapped in her family with her husband’s abusive relationship while raising her daughter Huan Huan. In the midst of summer, Meizi picks up a call from a mysterious agency regarding her clandestine divorce. She walks in an otherworldly tunnel that pulls and chants her onto a familiar path and re-awakens her perceptions under the dreamlike sea of her wedding. Unexpectedly, Meizi finds Huan Huan, her daughter, present at her wedding with her husband. Would she choose to say no to the marriage this time, or will she drown again?
