A Bird in a Cage

Shiyu Qiao, a talented music student, is sexually assaulted by the teacher she once trusted on the night before the art exam. The violin bow left in the teacher's hand when she escapes. In order to attend the exam of the ideal university on time, she chooses to contact the teacher patiently to get the bow back, but the teacher does not want her to be admitted to the top university so as to stay away from his control. Qiao Shiyu could no longer bear the violence and panic in the guise of art, so she took a more violent way to fight for herself.
