Cloud 9 takes place in repressive British Colonial Africa and groovy 1979 London, inviting us into the lives of people coping with loneliness through taboo expressions of sexuality. Capturing the zeitgeist of two complex eras, Cloud 9 is a hilarious, gender-bending, sexy, dark, grotesque, heartbreaking exploration of sexual politics, oppression, and our struggle to connect with each other and with who we are inside.
