A lonely young Chinese woman, Wu Hongyan (Liu Dan), works as a bailiff for a remote regional court that hands out death sentences. She coldly dons white gloves to assist with capital punishment, sometimes pulling the trigger herself. Attractive, but tightly wound, she journeys afar by bus, to attend a dance hall where strangers are brought together by a dating agency. Her first date is an ingratiating man (Xu Wei) who charms her by sleight-of-hand magic tricks, but she is forced to defend herself when his passion gets out of hand. In due course she encounters Li Yun (Qi Dao), who is tall and quiet, but it turns out that his wife is one of the prisoners that Wu has dispatched. He stalks the bailiff, but her curiosity is aroused and they begin a relationship in which hostility is clawing just below to the surface.
