The Wayward Cloud

The Wayward Cloud

Synopsis

"On one hand, The Wayward Cloud is a tender urban romance, punctuated with vibrant 50s-style song and dance numbers. On the other, it features extended bouts of unflinchingly simulated pornography, sudden injections of black physical humour. [...] Set in a modern city against a major drought and a national obsession with watermelons […] it's the story of a quiet girl, Shiang-Chyi, who meets a boy, Hsiao-Kang, in a park outside her high-rise apartment block. Unknown to her, though, he is now working, only a few floors up, as a porn star – a secret that cannot stay hidden forever." – Jonathan Trout
