When a burnt body is discovered in the vicinity of a mountain village, the search is on to discover how it got there. Xin employs a chopped-up timeline to deepen the mystery in his riddle of a film, an unflinching depiction of provincial imprisonment which begins with Zongyao (Wang Xiaotian), the son of the village chief, struggling to free himself from family ties before opening up to multiple perspective in a series of surprising metamorphosis.

The Coffin in the Mountain is screening as part of the series New Noir Chinese Crime Films. Click here for more info.
