synopsis

The sudden death in unexplained circumstances of her young Taiwanese lover, Ai-ling, throws Hamburg artist Sophie Schmitt totally off balance.

Shortly thereafter, Mei-li turns up on Sophie’s doorstep unannounced. Sophie takes her in and falls for her charm. Soon, Sophie realises that Mei-li is secretly investigating Ai-ling’s death. A series of strange happenings follow thick and fast. Then Sophie discovers that Mei-Li neither works for a Taiwanese newspaper, nor has she officially entered Germany.
