Storyline

Seven-year-old Kayla has a happy family. Her mother comes from China, her father from the United States. One day, Kayla and her mother go to China for vacation. Her Mandarin is poor but she always stands up for herself and others, which gives her unexpected trouble with other children in the country. Even worse, her father dies unexpectedly on a mission in the U.S., which changes Kayla's life completely. Her dreams and hopes are mercilessly taken away. She has to grow up quickly to take care of her sick mother. Kayla learns how to deal with poor and grueling situations while she misses her father deeply. She finds balance between Chinese culture and Western culture, life and death, losing and gaining. She takes on the responsibility of her broken family. She inspires the people around her with love and singing. She always finds courage, even when she feels lost. And in the end, she manages to carve out a happy life. Written by Kayla's Movie LLC
