Quiet, introverted mortuary cosmetician Min-Hsiu floats through her life and her job at a funeral home even more like a ghost than the corpses she carefully paints and powders into a semblance of life. She has found peace working amongst the dead, a peace that she has difficulty finding with the living. This strange equilibrium is disrupted when she receives the body of her high school music teacher, Chen Ting, listed on the death report as a suicide. The film gradually reveals her relationship with the deceased to be the deepest and most important of her adolescence, and it leaves her with one anguished question: how did the love of her life wind up committing suicide?
