A homicide case from 30 years ago was adapted into a stage play by the municipal theatre troupe. As the person involved in the murder, the renewed attention on the case disrupts Ma Fuli's (Chen Jianbin) life. Ma Fuli is pulled in all directions while trying to sort things out with stage play director Hu Kunding (Da Peng), looking for a lawyer to clear his name and attempting to reconcile the tense relationship between his wife Jin Cailing (Zhou Xun) and daughter Jin Duoduo (Leah Dou). Life is like a play, what is real and what is not?
