Zhuo Wenjun

Vera Ma

Sima Xiangru (司馬相如), a famous cifu (辭賦) master in the Han Dynasty, is experiencing setbacks in his career. On a visit to Linqiong (臨邛), he plays a song expressing his search for love. Zhuo Wenjun(卓文君), a young widow, is blown away by his music and falls in love with him. Both are so smitten by each other that they decide to break free from all the conventions and elope. That night, they go to a far away place to set up a wine shop to earn a living so that Xiangru can go to the capital to take the Civil Exam. Wenjun pines for her lover and expresses her lovesickness in this song.
