Like so many other women in this day and age, Shen Yue (Zhou Xun), Liang Jing Si (Sammi Cheng), and Zhou Xiao Lu (Huang Mi Yi) spent their days juggling a myriad of tasks. From work to chores, to family demands, life for each of these women was an endless cycle of busyness. But when the world was shaken by a global pandemic, everything changed. Though from completely different walks of life, Shen Yue, Jing Si, and Xiao Lu suddenly find themselves facing a common dilemma as news of the spreading pandemic begins to have dramatic impacts on their daily lives. Joining an entire world in a seemingly endless struggle to navigate the turbulent waters of a growing pandemic, each woman tries to do her best. But with jobs suddenly gone, lovers separated, families crumbling, and death seems to lurk around every corner, the task isn’t easy.
