When a pandemic breaks out, Li You is given a long vacation while Xiao Xiao is forced to remain in a city that she does not know well. A strange atmosphere hangs over the urban landscape. The two of them wander the streets in search of fun things to do. Meanwhile, their emotions, state of mind, ethical values, and physical instincts gradually become tools of desire. Once they have indulged in their pleasures and their euphoria reaches a climax, what else is left for them to set their hearts on, apart from the marks they have left on the city?

"Environment, loneliness, freedom, salvation, and ideology flood this story, and there's no way to change them. 'I have to adapt a new strategy, take a different angle. I must find a different logic and a new way to recognize and identify with the world,' I told myself. I refuse to go into the silence and burden of reality. Instead, I want my characters to dance with true desire. All I am doing is just quoting from their verses and making their every word authentic." [Chen Guan]

Writer, director and actor Chen Guan, who starred in Jenny Teng's short The Lobster's Dive, which competed at the Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival in 2015, obtained a degree in film directing from EICAR (the International Film & Television School) in Paris. He directed the short film F**k, which premiered at the Côté Court Film Festival. Shen kong is his first feature film.
