Comments: Pro Tip: This thing is such an abject failure at what it pretends to be doing, give up on it early and look for more highfalutin fun.

Random CCTV, car cam stuff, and other sources are presented with a basic love-lost romance superimposed upon them. We "overhear" our subjects, and listen to them narrate their story. It's a cool idea that is so bizarrely unconvincing it becomes charming.


"If you fake reality, then reality is fake!" Roll that one around for a while and see if makes any sense. Aren't we all everybody in these random images?

Heavy stuff. This film is so goofy I ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

Summary: Each of us is captured on surveillance cameras, on average, 300 times a day. These all-seeing 'eyes' observe a young woman named Qing Ting (her name means 'Dragonfly') as she leaves the Buddhist temple where she has been training to be a nun and returns to the secular world, taking a job in a highly mechanized dairy farm. Ke Fan, a technician working on the farm, falls in love with her and breaks the law in an attempt to please her. On his release from jail Ke Fan looks for Qing Ting again, without success - until he comes to think that she has reinvented herself as the online celebrity Xiao Xiao. But Xiao Xiao slips from her pedestal, and Ke Fan resolves to reinvent himself as Qing Ting.
