SYNOPSIS

Sheng Nan, whose name literally means ‘Better than Man’ is a strong-willed investigative journalist who finds herself at life’s crossroads when she discovers she has ovarian cancer, and may never again enjoy carnal pleasures. Beset with family woes and unable to afford the necessary surgery, Sheng Nan undertakes an assignment to ghost-write the memoirs of a mildly celebrated calligrapher to earn her medical fee, and perhaps find herself a partner who is willing to get intimate with her for possibly the last time.

Drawing praise for its confident and unapologetic depiction of a modern woman and her desires, director Teng Congcong’s debut feature film Send Me to the Clouds is a brilliant ode to female empowerment and self-discovery.
