Following Wuhan’s Coronavirus lockdown, a rural single mother, Zhao, embarks on a dangerous journey in search of her preemie newborn baby stranded in Wuhan City Hospital.
Against a harsh, grim winter night, she trudges through trials and tribulations, fighting a way around checkpoints. Joining her path is a mysterious eight-year-old girl, who shares the same determination to reunite with her mother in the city.
Surprisingly, as Zhao goes through bureaucratic and physical obstacles, we notice that the little girl has information and solutions just as Zhao needs them. When Zhao finally almost gets to Wuhan, we realize things are not as it seems…
Will Zhao find her baby? And who is this mysterious little girl?
