Comments: This is one of those Chinese rural life movies where you can't be sure if it's done with good actors acting like it's done with real villagers or if it's done with real villagers trying to act. A young girl's coming of age/sexual awakening against a backdrop of grisly rape murders. The girl approaches both with a fearless inquisitiveness. Hmm. Generational differences and changing morals are also explored. "Don't sit on the back of a bike with your legs open. It's not a good look."

Summary: In the summer of 1991, a rape case broke the peace of a small town. The fathers of two girls in the local middle school were the policemen in charge of the case. Nevertheless, they had very different working styles: QU's father was a stubborn legal medical expert always insisting on ironclad evidence, while ZHANG's father, a retired soldier, handled cases relying on his intuition and often extorted confessions through torture. The supposed criminal was caught by ZHANG's father yet similar cases kept happening. Nobody noticed ZHANG's disappearance since she was kicked out of class.
