No Power To One Room

Hi there. I have a bedroom in my home that doesn't seem to have any power. It was like this when we purchased it, so not sure what happened. When I turn the breaker on, the light comes on, then pops the breaker again within seconds. None of the wall plugs work either. I have replaced all of the receptacles, replaced the light fixture, etc, and still have the same problem. The rest of the house is working fine, but cannot figure out how to fix the issue in the one bedroom. Nothing is plugged in, so there is nothing tripping the breaker that way. Any suggestions on what to try next would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi, is it a standard breaker or an AFCI ? May not be easy , but try to figure the middle of the circuit and remove the receptacle from the box and remove the conductors, try the breaker again, keep this procedure up until you find the short.
Post a pic of the breaker.

Sounds like a ground fault is causing high current over trip.
Possible causes.
box cable clamp too tight, pinching cable.
Nail or screw in wall to hang a new picture punctured cable.
Rodent(rat, squirrel, mouse) chewed cable.
