Soon they fell in love and began their twice weekly passionate affair while commuting to the city of Chongyang.
But a fellow commuter named simply as Zhang, a veterinarian, came in between the two lovebirds, with a secret amorous agenda of his own for Zhou Yu.

But this is more than just a love triangle.

A new woman named Xiu came into the scene. She looked like Zhou Yu. But the scene takes on a different era; a different time period. She is reading the book, "Zhou Yu's Train".
Is Zhou Yu a real person? Is Zhou Yu really was Xiu? Or is Zhou Yu a figment of Xiu's romantic imagination?

Be prepared for a surreal, non-linear movie.
