What starts off as an idyllic love story turns horribly sour.
Noted underwater photographer Dave Chen (played by Guo Xiao Dong) plans a romantic rendezvous. He s taking his beloved Jing Gao (played by Lee Sinje) to the mysterious ancient ruins which are 10,000 years old. These ruins, located off Yonaguni Island, at the westernmost tip of Japan, are Dave s passion, his life s work. Many years ago, Dave had hidden an engagement ring there, vowing to return someday to propose to the woman of his dreams. His dream comes true. He s about to propose to Jing Gao underwater in the mysterious ruins.
Dave s sister, Helen (played by Isabella), a neighbour and friend of Jing Gao s is present to share their happy moment. But instead, she implores her brother to reconsider, to wait... Undeterred, Dave dives into the ruins after Jing Gao...Just then, a freak accident befalls him; he disappears without a trace. Shortly afterwards, a decapitated corpse of a man is found. His identity inconclusive despite DNA matching.
Dave s disappearance unleashes a train of events...Heartbroken and shattered, Jing Gao rapidly spirals off into another world, haunted by phantoms, apparitions and the eerie appearance of a glass numbered 1016. In desperation she turns to Simon and at his suggestion resorts to some unusually extreme means to find Dave. Meanwhile, Helen believes Dave s remains have been swept by the currents to nearby Turtle Island, Taiwan.
She searches for his remains there and discovers Helen s camcorder and a head in the surrounding waters. Helen brings them back to Hong Kong. To her horror, the camcorder contains footage of that fatal dive. Jing Gao holds the key to Dave s disappearance. As the pieces of Dave s disappearance emerge, the truth slips further and further away...
