A city in southern China. In the heat of summer.
While out surveying for the digital mapping company he works for, Li Qiuming offers a pretty young woman a lift home. Not long afterwards, he notices a small box with a memory stick under the car seat and realizes that the woman, Guan Lifen, must have left it. He arranges to give the box back to her at a Starbucks, but is disappointed to be met instead by a man who introduces himself as the director of the lab where Lifen works. He asks for Qiuming’s address and phone number – to thank him, he claims – and Qiuming is left with an uneasy feeling.
So much for romance, he thinks. But when Qiuming tries to enter the mapping data for the street where he met Lifen into his company’s system, the system rejects it as invalid. Revisiting the street for a second survey late at night, he encounters Lifen again, and the two happily resume their conversation in her car.
After this promising start, however, Qiuming suddenly finds his life turned upside-down: his discovery of the memory stick and attempts to get close to Lifen have placed him under suspicion; he is accused of stealing sensitive data.
What can he do to prove his innocence? Can he return to normal life? -- Visions Sud Est
