NINA WU
NINA WU

After eight years toiling in bit-parts, aspiring actress Nina Wu finally gets her big break with a leading role in a spy thriller set in the 1960s. The part is challenging, not least because it calls for fully nudity and explicit sex scenes, and the film's director is often hard on her. But both the industry and the press are confident that the results are sensationally good. 
On the brink of triumph, though, Nina's psychological resolve begins to crack. She rushes back to her family home to deal with two crises: her father's business has gone bankrupt and her mother has suffered a heart attack. She dreams of rekindling a close relationship with her childhood friend Kiki but is haunted by paranoid fantasies that a mysterious woman is stalking and attacking her. As Nina clings to memories of happier times, it seems that there is one crucial memory that she is repressing.
