In 2001, Qiao is the girlfriend of a mob boss named Bin. Together they have a lot of power in Datong, an old mining city that now has become poor since the price of coal dropped. After Bin's boss is murdered, Qiao suggests that they run away from everything and get married, but Bin isn't interested. One night a group of motorcycles overtakes their car, and the riders begin attacking the driver and Bin. At first Bin fights them off, but there are too many, and they begin to beat him, claiming their intention to "dethrone" him. Qiao grabs Bin's handgun from her handbag and fires a warning shot into the air, and then another, scaring off the attackers.
The police tell Qiao that the gun is illegally owned, and asks her whose it is, but she repeatedly claims that it's hers. She spends five years in prison for possessing an illegal firearm, and Bin does not visit her during that time, despite her saving him and taking the fall for him. After Qiao is released, she tries to call him, but can never seem to get in touch. Qiao travels by boat to the city in Hubei province where Bin is living, and Qiao is instead greeted by Bin's new girlfriend — meanwhile, Bin hides in another room. Qiao says that if he wants to break up with her, he'll have to tell her himself. She has almost no money to her name, and she schemes ways to con a few strangers for money and food. She hires a motorcycle driver to take her to the power plant where she thinks that Bin works, and along the way the driver suggests that they have sex. She uses this opportunity to steal his bike, and when she gets to the power plant she reports to a police officer that the driver tried to rape her and that he should call her boyfriend Bin. This finally forces Bin to see her.
