    Taiwan's highest grossing film (breaking Titanic's record) and the country's official entry into the 81st Academy Awards, "Cape No 7" is a story filled with humor, romance and nostalgia.

    "Cape No 7" is the story of Aga (Van Fan) a rock musician who returns home to a small seaside town in Taiwan after failing to break through in Taipei. Stripped of confidence and purpose he grudgingly takes to the road as a local postman and in the process unexpectedly discovers a pack of undelivered letters from 1945 addressed to a resident at the long forgotten Cape No 7. As Aga begins to unravel the mystery of the letters he is forced to face his fears by returning to the stage as the band leader in a local warm up act for a visiting rock star. When interim band manager, Tomoko (Chie Tanaka) is drafted in by the town's elders to supervise the effort (as well as the temperamental Aga), a painful truth emerges from the lost letters that will change both of their lives forever.

    "Cape No 7" was nominated for seven awards at the 45th Golden Horse Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director and awarded, "Viewer's Choice Award", "Best Original Film Score", "Best Original Film Song", "Best Supporting Actor" and "Outstanding Taiwanese Film of the Year".

    Internationally, the film has been awarded the Halekulani Golden Orchid Award for Best Narrative at the 2008 Hawaii International Film Festival and Grand Prize at the Japanese Asian Marine festival.
