Film director Zhun Wang lives in Shanghai. For a documentary project about the traditional elegy »The Story of Darkness«, he travels to the mountains of southwestern China with a small film crew. Not before long, the first difficulties appear and the group deviates from its planned route. The unfamiliar situation, far from civilization, brings Zhun’s hidden fears to the surface. When he finally hears the elegy at a funeral, Zhun experiences his epiphany.
»The Pluto Moment« was selected to screen in the »Directors’ Fortnight« section at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
