Where Star Lies is my graduate thesis in Communication University of China (CUC). I worked as director, screenwriter, and editor of this project. As an astronomy enthusiast, I always thought it interesting to discuss about "the multiple universes" in human's heart. I wrote and directed this story, trying to tell a moment when the two universes in a girl's heart connect because of a person.
Li Xun, a girl who lived with her grandmother in the countryside and ran a family hostel for a living, accidentally received a group of student from city led by Mr. Luo, an enthusiast of astronomy. In just two days, Xun was deeply attracted by both the astronomical knowledge Luo talked about, and also Luo himself. The strong affection of Xun, and her powerlessness about the feelings drove her to make a different decision from her normal life.
