Monika Treut (Female Misbehaviour, Gendernauts) returns to narrative filmmaking after a decade in documentary work with a mysterious love story about a Hamburg artist, Sophie, who is trying to come to terms with her Taiwanese lover Ai-Ling's murder. To ease her grief Sophie creates a video installation about Ai-Ling, and when she brings the exhibition to Taipei she meets the ambitious and seductive Mei-Li, a journalist who is investigating Ai-Ling's death. Unable to forget her dead lover and confused by Mei-Li's advances, she flees back to Hamburg. But when Mei-Li turns up on her doorstep, Sophie begins to suspect something strange is going on.
"Intriguing, oddly fascinating…touches of Nicholas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now.” -Laura Kern, Film Comment
