Released during the last days of the Cultural Revolution, he finally returns home only to find that his beloved wife has amnesia and remembers little of her past. Unable to recognize Lu, she patiently waits for her husband's return - until Lu determines to resurrect their past together and reawaken his wife's memory.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a meandering and frequently tepid love story that also wants to be an important commentary but is too weightless to be effective as either..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]
“..an epic gravity that recalls another great historical romance..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]
“..beautifully constructed, Coming Home is somewhat under-developed, relying too much on its audience's wider knowledge and emotional connection to the period, rather than earning it through well-staged reenactment..”
by James Marsh [TwitchFilm]
