Directed by Xiaofeng, from a script he co-wrote with Li Xiaofeng and Yu Xin, and starring Zhang Yu, Song Jia, Wang Yanhui, and Lee Hong-Chi, Back to the Wharf chronicles how, fifteen years ago, Song Hao, a top student in high school, went into hiding after being falsely ID’d for a murder he didn’t commit. On returning to his hometown as a grown man, it seems that everything has gone back to normal. His reunion with his old classmate Pan Xiaoshuang casts a bright light on his gloomy life. She provides him with warmth that gradually tames the crashing waters beneath the surface. He decides to start his life anew and reconcile with his father, in order to find the truth about the unspeakable past that he ran away from.

Back to the Wharf world premiered at the Shanghai International Film Festival and went on to screen around the globe to critical acclaim, including the Fantasia International Film Festival and the Glasgow Film Festival.
