Xuan, a 16 year old girl, finds herself on an uneventful bus tour in a foreign land. Wandering through the sleepless town in the middle of the night, she meets the tour guide and bus driver at a skewer stall where the two men take turns making advances on her.
Xuan gives in to the pursuit of adventure, and unknowingly enters a world that is at once terrifying and exciting. She finds herself ensnared in the hands of desire, trapped in restless dreams and dazed fantasies.
