August is Ghost Month in Taiwan - a time to pay respects to the dead and avoid unlucky omens.Jing-nan, who runs a food stand in a bustling Taipei night market, isn't superstitious, but this August will haunt him. He learns that his high school sweetheart has been murdered - found scantily clad near a highway where she was selling betel nuts. 'Betel nut beauties' are typically women in desperate circumstances, but Julia Huang was high school valedictorian, and the last time Jing-nan spoke to her, she was far away, happily enrolled in NYU's honour program.The facts don't add up. Julia's parents don't think so, either, but the police seem to have closed the case without asking any questions. The Huangs beg Jing-nan to do some investigating, but nothing can prepare him for what he is about to learn, or how it will change his life. .

On one terrible night, 17-year-old Harley Langston's life changes forever. At a party she discovers her younger sister, Audrey, hooking up with her boyfriend, Mike - and she abandons them both in a rage. When Mike drunkenly attempts to drive Audrey home, he crashes and Audrey ends up in a coma. Now Harley is left with guilt, grief, pain and the undeniable truth that her ex-boyfriend (who is relatively unscathed) has a drinking problem. So it's a surprise that she finds herself reconnecting with Raf, a neighbour and childhood friend who's recently out of rehab and still wrestling with his own demons. At first Harley doesn't want to get too close to him. But as Audrey awakens and slowly recovers, Raf starts to show Harley a path forward that she never would have believed possible - one guided by honesty, forgiveness, and redemption. .
