Changfeng Town is located in an inconspicuous corner of China. It's a seemingly mundane place where everybody knows one another and the people are content with life.

The lyricism of everyday life and the quirky stories of the townspeople unfold through five intertwining chapters that are filled with joy and sadness, but never without hope. CHANGFENG TOWN is a cinephile's dream that features an expansive sound design inspired by the Coen brothers and is layered with references of the past -from discarded editing techniques to excerpts and film posters from classic Chinese cinema.

Many things in town exist in solitude - the cinema, the dentist’s office, the car repair shop. The townspeople are unique and full of eccentricities. Each has a story of their own: The domestic problem of the aimless Redhead, the secret between the dentist and his son, the unrequited love of cinema box office attendant Cai-Xia, and the loneliness of the crippled Xi-Shan.

Rated PG: Some coarse language, tobacco and alcohol use, and mature subject matter
