Synopsis

At the end of the school semester, Bao is sent to Quchi to be with his recently widowed grandfather while his parents discuss divorce. Depressed and sullen, he discovers he shares the nickname “Bear” with a girl in his new elementary class.

These two friendships brighten Bao’s life during this time of parental distress and allow him to rethink his views on existence.
