Long-Long's New Year
It is the day before New Year and Long-Long's family is preparing for the celebrations. Long-Long is leaving his village for the first time in order to help his grandfather with the cartload of cabbages they must sell in order to buy food and decorations for the festivities. The characters and scenarios they encounter along the way provide a snapshot of life in contemporary China, seen through the eyes of a young child.
