Spanning seven decades, an amnesiac (acclaimed actress Gong Li) struggles to regain her memory and reconnect with her imprisoned husband in the wake of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.

Master director Zhang Yimou (Hero, Raise the Red Lantern, Red Sorghum) adopts a more nuanced and humble directing style in undertaking Coming Home. This touching drama based on Yan Gelling’s novel "The Criminal Lu Yanshi" charts the trials of a family separated in a changing society.
