Description:
  Xiaolin and Xiaoli each walk through a long dark tunnel. The film exposes the dark shadow of modern China through the stories of two unrelated characters. Xiaolin, who earns money through physical labor, suffers from excessive sexual desire but cannot afford to have a girlfriend. A married woman, Xiaoli lives away from her husband who works in Shanghai to pay off his debt. As her economical situation turns worse, she turns to prostitution. The couple promises each other to go back to their hometown when they make some money, but they don’t really believe it is possible. Xiaolin meets Xiaoli as her client, and his repressed lust surfaces as abuse towards Xiaoli. Xiaoli’s scream for help echoes loudly. Money has replaced traditional class segregation, making a new class system and her cry for help represents the pain of all lower class majority.
