Kun's mother and father grow bonsai in the mountains around their village near Ningbo. We follow Kun as he walks a half-hour to his school, watch the cook steam lunches the students have brought from home, see how Kun's father trains bonsai plants, visit the village's open market with Kun's mother and watch her prepare a meal for the family and Kun's grandparents.
In the Award Winning Families of the World Series, viewers get a peek at the everyday lives of two families - usually an urban and a rural family. We are introduced to a child who helps narrate his or her activities. The footage is fantastic - intimate but not intrusive. Lots of interesting facts about the country are presented from a realistic viewpoint which brings other cultures up close.
