An unassuming Chinese student vanishes from her American college campus.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
In June 2017, Chinese student Yingying Zhang’s dream of earning her PhD in America morphed into a nightmare when she disappeared from her college campus, sparking a desperate search for her whereabouts. Characteristically cautious, Yingying would not typically put herself in harm’s way—but what if trouble came looking for her? Fellow student and filmmaker Jiayan “Jenny” Shi joins forces with Yingying’s family on their quest for answers, sharing the hope and pain of finding their beloved daughter.
