How to Describe a Cloud
Looking after her blind mother, Liling is confronted with the troublesome co-existence of scientific realism and supernatural sensitivity.
When the mother of Liling becomes blind, her daughter is lured back to the small island where she grew up. Through language she tries to connect her mother with the world again. Back in the big city, where Liling has a strange friendship with an older scientist, she begins to become more aware of the value of her imagination. This increases Liling's attraction towards the inexplicable, and little by little she is drawn into a mystery...
