It’s a wet winter in Hangzhou. Muzi, 22, comes home for Chinese New Year, where she plays her roles as a daughter, a half-sister, and a girlfriend. One day, Muzi accompanies her little sister to school and meets a local bar owner, the father of another student. The strange man reminds Muzi of an old friend, waking up memories of a former relationship. At the same time, Muzi’s boyfriend arrives for a visit. Roaming in this city that feels so familiar yet distant, Muzi searches for a place where she belongs.
A debut feature after eight short films, The Cloud in Her Room is loosely based on director Zheng Lu Xinyuan’s personal memories as she blends documentary footage with a fragmented narrative and the use of non-professional actors.
