Bao is sent to the village of Quchi to accompany his widowed grandpa during the summer because his parents are getting divorced. Taking his summer holiday homework with him, Bao is transferred to the local village school. He finds out that he and a girl in the class share the same nickname, and he also befriends a boy called Mingchuan. The new found friendships brighten Bao’s life during this period of his parents’ separation, as he also reconnects with his grandpa.

A Time in Quchi is the final chapter of the director’s stories about family. After his father passed away, Chang Tso Chi wanted to make a film in his father’s familiar language, hence “How are you, Dad?” was born. The next movie, “When Love Comes” (Best Picture 47th Golden Horse Awards), is a story about mothers.

Director’s Statement “I want to see the whole adult world from modern children’s perspectives. It is a joyful and peaceful narrative, very different from my usual films. With the three films: father, mother, and children, I finally accomplish at this stage of my life what I want to express about people’s lives.”
