Thriller. A young man, Lei Haiyang, has just split up with his girlfriend, at her instigation. He hitches a ride in a truck heading towards Beijing, the other passenger being a young runaway, Yanzi. When he awakes from a deep sleep to see Yanzi being assaulted by the driver, he hides in some bushes, and although the girl sees him, she does not give him away. When he reaches Beijing, Lei sees a television news report detailing the discovery of a girl's body in the same woods, and reports his experience to the police. Shortly afterwards, he spots a girl wearing a wig and sunglasses as disguise who is identical to Yanzi; however, she denies the fact.
