There is a teacher named Wu Wenxue (Huang Bo), who is about to be promoted, a woman named Li Nan (Wang Luodan), who is about to get divorced, a debt-collecting thug named Kuai Zi (Bai-Ke), and a young woman named Xiaofen(Huang Lu), who wants to marry a man her parents do not approve of, and they all suddenly see people around them disappearing in bright lights. This causes daily lives and relationships to fall apart, and as a rumor spreads that the disappeared people were couples in love, those that remain question whether their partners really love them and are afraid to find out that they are abandoned.
In this environment of supernatural disaster, Gone with the Light explores people who justify their pursuit of materialism and selfishness, and raises questions about what true love really is. The outstanding acting from prominent actors makes the story more convincing and empowering. This includes Huang Bo, who made his debut in Crazy Stone and won the Golden Horse Awards for Best Leading Actor for his work in Cow. (Ellen Y. D. KIM)
