In the traditional art form of paper-cut, the film is the first to focus on Nantong’s cultural and historical legacies as a city bordering the Yellow Sea and the Yangtze River. The film was well received since the release on March 16. Some audience said the film discusses topics like love and courage important to children’s growth. For some, the film has a touching end and makes a great reference to traditional Chinese philosophy on the harmony between people and the nature.
