Li Yanshi and Feng Wanyu are a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is sent to a labor camp as a political prisoner. 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.

A stranger alone in the heart of his broken family, Lu Yanshi is determined to resurrect their past together and reawaken his wife’s memory. Based on Yan Geling’s novel, The Criminal Lu Yanshi, Coming Home is a love story about joy and sadness, as well as separation and reunion. Directed by Zhang Yimour (Hero and House of Flying Dagger). In Mandarin with English subtitles. PG-13, 109 minutes.
