The myth of the original star-crossed lovers
In the court of the Jade Emperor, a young princess had a special skill: she could pluck clouds from the sky and spin them into the softest robes.

Shannon Zhao details the myth of the star-crossed lovers. [Directed by brume, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott, music by Alexis Dehimi, Mars Octobre Music].
