A superstar reporter at a Nanjing newspaper seems to have it all -- a respectable job, a sizeable modern apartment and a pretty girlfriend. Then, a country bumpkin demands public kudos in the reporter's newspaper for saving a university coed from rape. Brushing him off at first, the reporter finally decides to investigate the case. Things become complicated after the alleged rape victim refuses to corroborate the story. Only when the truth is about to be revealed does the reporter find himself faced with the dilemma between objective truth and subjective reality, and the raison d'Ãªtre behind his profession is on the verge of collapse.
