During the Republican era, a group of frustrated filmmakers gathered to make a film from a huge event that once rocked the city of Shanghai, hoping that it would create a great sensation and become famous. But they never expected that the “murderer” was in the midst of them and the truth behind the incident was far stranger than the plot of their fictional movie.
