An-kun works washing the windows of the capital city's skyscrapers while his wife Ping-guo earns a decent wage as a masseuse at a popular parlor. The parlor is owned by Dong, a rich middle-aged businessman who epitomizes China's new money-obsessed society. Their worlds collide after Dong awkwardly forces himself on a vulnerable Ping-guo, not realizing that An-kun, atop his perch outside the office window, is witnessing everything. Seeing this as a moneymaking opportunity, An-kun decides to blackmail Dong. He either has to pay or he gets brought up on charges for rape. But when Ping-guo learns that she's pregnant, the stakes get even higher.
