Qing Jie's husband tries to rape him one day when they are alone in the house, prompting Xiao Bo to leave and seek shelter with Chong Chong, the editor of an underground magazine devoted to graffiti collected from public toilets known to be gay cruising areas.

In the meantime, Qing Jie has made up her mind to leave her husband and live with her girlfriend A Meng, with whom she has been having an affair.
