A group of children living in a forest without tree
An adventure to find the invisible friend, Mr. Shen....
The story takes place in a trash jungle where there was once an abundant green forest. The residents here include a bear who is always eating or sleeping, a piglet who has a lisp, a donkey who carries a negative mindset, and a rabbit who worries too much and always acts cautiously. One day, they go on a journey to seek for their legendary partner, “Mr. Chris”. However the trip is full of challenges, they have been attacked, stolen and too starving to keep on moving forward,...Will they be able to find their “Mr. Chris” eventually?
The scenery of the forest is built by second-handed clothes and recycled toys. Every character in the story symbolized the status of exceptional children -- autism, anxious, depressed, forgetful and so on. By witnessing their test through the journey, we can learn to listen, to tolerate and to be supportive going through the hard time together.
