Sexual mores and social stigmas are explored as secrets and lies are exposed in this tale where a disparate group of people suffer miscommunication and misunderstandings. A strange and secretive old man who wears old-fashioned clothes often ventures down from his apartment at the top of a building to catch a bus to a hospital for no discernible reason. He is a notorious spectacle due to his rudeness and aloofness. One day, Zhen-zhen, a rebellious girl who lives in the building opposite, breaks into his place with the intention of spying on her father who is having an affair. This is the start of more frequent visits as the two, initially hostile, begin to soften to one another and reveal their secret thoughts but neighbours begin to suspect that the old man is hiring sex workers and preying on underage girls, making him a target of hostility which reveals his secret...
