His name is Lee; a lively, curious and greedy boy from Sichuan Province in China. The bamboo forests of these cold climes is his home and the mountains are his playground.
During one of his escapades he finds a fascinating book half buried in bamboo leaves about discovering the world. Excited to learn about this unfamiliar place, he flips through the pages to learn that his forests represent only a very small part of the world. This fact naturally awakes his insatiable curiosity. At night in his warm bed he dreams of travelling across seas and mountains to visit these unknown new places.
After telling friends and family about the discovery he decides to leave for a journey round the world and promises to send them news at each destination. On a cold and wet winter morning he bids farewell and, equipped with a backpack and plane ticket, the adventure begins.
