Feng Zhengjie is suffering from a lack of inspiration that keeps him from both painting and falling asleep at night. One night, wide awake as always, he sees a woman slide by in front of him. She is faint, indistinct, and both nearby and unreachable all at once. She hovers around him, and appears wherever he goes; the bar, on the street, a coffee shop. He is no longer certain whether the woman is in his head, or whether he is the one in the woman's head. Soon, his time starts flowing backwards. As more time passes, Feng Zhengjie falls deep into his inner world, and the boundaries between dream and reality fall apart. When he closes his eyes, he hears the everyday sounds of modern civilization. When he opens them, he again sees a dense forest, and wakes with the wind of nature. He is young again. He wanders aimlessly, until he comes face to face with the woman he was haunted by.
"I Am Trash" (2015)

Three grown sons have struggled to achieve some sort of normal routine after their father was sent off to prison for sexual assault on an underaged girl. Their lives are thrown into radical disarray when dad finishes his time and returns to the family home. The fact that the victim's father is awaiting the return outside their door with a knife is certainly not any help to their situation... but it's not like things are going so well otherwise, with the three sons, a virtual compendium of sexual dysfunctions in their own right.
