During the first days of the pandemic lockdown, a small group of Chinese tourists is trapped in a Thai hotel. Total lockdown triggers emotional entanglements, tensions, and the revelation of long-kept secrets. The film reflects on the pandemic and its devastating effects on younger generations, drawing inspiration from the director’s own experience.
