In 2005, Qian Hui Deng and Xue Mei Li received notice from the Canadian government that their son Shi-Ming had allegedly committed suicide. They decide to travel from Beijing to Vancouver to investigate the mysterious circumstances around Shi-Ming’s death. Skilfully employing a docu-thriller style, the film follows the grieving parents for over a decade as they navigate a new culture and a complex web of bureaucracy in a search for answers.
