In Song Dynasty, ancient China, a young lady in a boudoir met an unconscious naked girl by the river. She saved the girl by waking her up but was then entangled by the girl. The nude girl curiously licked her with its tongue but accidentally swallowed one of the young lady’s earrings, and disappeared with no sound. The young lady reached home, she took off her hairpins and removed her makeups while fantasizing herself living as freely as the nude girl. Suddenly, there was a knock at the door. The servant brought a bowl of snake soup for the young lady to drink. She couldn’t refuse, so she drank it. She drank something hard, so she took a look in the bowl, her lost earring laid.

导演阐述 Director Statement
本⽚在题材上，有着中国古代特有的志异⾊彩，其次内核上也 有与时俱进的⼥性主义设置。 两个⼥主⼈公分别过着不⼀样的⽣活，闺阁⼩姐拥有⽗权 制度下不由⾃主的“美丽”，⽽蛇妖则是⾃然与野性以及不被驯化 的代表。两者身份在碰撞时，与中国古代特有的⽂化背景产⽣了 奇妙的碰撞,⼆⼈之间的感情超脱于传统的“爱情”。
In terms of theme, this film has the unique color of folktale in ancient China. Secondly, the core also has the feminist setting of keeping pace with the times. The two heroines live different lives. The lady of the boudoir has the involuntary “beauty” under the patriarchal system, and the snake girl is the representative of nature and wildness and not being domesticated. When the two identities collide, they also have a wonderful collision with the unique cultural background
