Jiawei had severed all ties with after his brother went to prison for a rape for which he may have been framed. Now the brother is out of prison and lives in a rundown, soon-to-be-demolished block of flats.

One day, Jiawei is contacted by his brother’s landlord, who claims he has not been paid rent for a while. After visiting the old building, talking to the landlord and meeting a terrorized single mother (Qin Hailu), Jiawei realizes his brother may have become a stalker and worse, may be the murderer of a young woman (Jessie Li) who lived next door to him.
