Synopsis

Inspired by a true event, it's a story about catching sex offenders in the 1970s. A series of rape cases happen in the northeast China. It starts when the impotent policeman meets a female pig breeder who was a retired Chinese-medicine professor at the crime scene. When solving thecase, unexpected twists and turns follow one after another.

东北偏北,再过去呢?就怕一切都没有了。濒临世界的极限,东北地带,文革结束没多久,性侵案却频传,公安队长李占山对犯罪没有太多认识,徒有一腔破案热情,对恶行够狠,但面对男女大事,身体总太软,硬不起来。当他遇见劳改下放的中医教授蔡滨,大老粗搭档知识分子,英雄遭遇书生,彼此就是对方最大的问题,新鲜组合妙趣横生,但世界还有更大的问题需要解决,随着证据逐一浮现,站在真相的边界上,性侵案真相、李占山软硬困扰,所有问题,这回一次解决。

灵感启发自真实事件,抓流氓抓出一段旧时代人情义理之故事。情节曲折不过世道颠沛,巧合中洞见世事之必然与偶然。让人笑也让人叹。
