A woman living in quiet Yanjiao, separated from Beijing by the White River and observing strict quarantine rules, has a simple daily routine consisting of nothing but cooking and cleaning. The mundanity, however, gives was to an erotic entanglement when she begins to sleep with a waiter from the neighborhood, under the watchful eye of her husband. From first-time female director Ma Xue, White River tests the viewers perceptions around voyeurism and female sensuality to surrealistic effect in this playfully mounted erotic drama.

    "“White River”... succeeds both as an art-house/experimental and an erotic film, with Ma Xue emerging as a filmmaker definitely worth following."
