Details
Born with a learning disability, Meimei is considered an outcast in her school and community. What no one recognises, however, is that she possesses a special gift waiting to be unlocked. The world seen through her eyes is unique and filled with magic. When her mother learns that Meimei suffers from dyslexia, as do 1 in 10 people worldwide, she will stop at nothing to help her, including leaving her life in China behind and venturing alone with Meimei to New York City, braving a place she knows nothing about and speaking not a word of English. Their pursuit of the impossible is a rollercoaster, impacted by the numerous people who come into their lives and affect their journey along the way, including Helen (AMY IRVING), a wheelchair user, outspoken writer who reluctantly takes them in.

Director's Statement

I became a mom fifteen years ago. My baby girl was such a little living wonder that she never failed to wow me.

I can still remember the day when I left China for America, with an urgency to find a school that could teach children with dyslexia, a learning disability that was unheard of in China, but crippled the future of millions of children around the world.
