Filmmakers Ming Zhao and Gong Yan's An Orphan on the Streets centers on a homeless boy who's taken in by a lonely high-class woman. Lin Zuo's The Watch follows three homeless kids who find trouble when they steal a watch from an elderly vendor. Zhao and Yan's comedy stars Wongji Lang as the street urchin known as Three Hairs. The Watch is based on a short story by acclaimed author Xun Lu about a timepiece that changes lives as it changes hands.
