The body of a woman is found beside a river in rural, 1990’s China. Led by Ma Zhe, an arrest is soon made. His superiors congratulate him, however various clues and more murders force Ma Zhe to investigate more thoroughly. Despite his orders to back off, he keeps working the case.

Pre screening

Before Only the River Flows you will see the short animated film Pivot (5', 2009) by André Bergs. When a man accidentally witnesses a murder and takes pictures of it, he has to run for his life. However, during the chase he manages to turn things around and becomes the pursuer. However, this leads to a dramatic outcome.
