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.
