The 22nd Udine Far East Film Festival: Competition Section
Changfeng Town is located in an inconspicuous corner of China. The townspeople all know one another and are content with life. Airplanes often fly across the town, reminding people of an unknown outside world.
Many things in this town exist in solitude - the cinema, the dentist’s office, the car repair shop, the newspaper office and the elementary school. The townspeople are unique and full of eccentricities. Each has a unique story:
The domestic problem of the aimless redhead, the secret between the dentist and his son, the unrequited love of cinema ticket-seller Cai-Xia and the loneliness of the crippled Xi-Shan.
A few mischievous boys wander in and out of these little stories, coinciding with the coming-of-age and departure of one of these boys. The film is divided into five intertwining chapters, always filled with joy and sadness but never without hope.
