    • Synopsis
    • A strange man inherits a building where cameras have been installed everywhere. His new tenants are of all kinds: a single dad with his daughter, a sexy office lady, a lazy porn-addicted student, a divorced sports teacher, a gay couple, and a mysterious young woman always dressed in white, Yingru. The landlord spends his days spying on his tenants until, one day, he sees Yingru torturing a man in her room. Fascinated, he starts reconsidering his role in the building. And when Yingru asks him to be a partner rather than solely a witness in his tenants' lives, and to help them "free" themselves, the strange man decides to act.
