Whose fault? A ghost beautified by human skin or humans possessing the devil's heart? Is it ever possible to avoid mistakes or is it destined to happen anyway? Without camouflage, would mankind's world reveal itself as hell? It is generally believed mistakes can be amended as long as someone feels guilty. However in reality, this is not always the case. Is love just a superficial seduction or is it existent truly in the heart? Join the discussion and explore a fundamental theme told through surreal Chinese traditional folklore recreated with smash-hit elements and soul-touching music.
