Synopsis

A boy named Ting-an experiences trouble at home and bullying at school. Out of fear, he forces himself to hide his feelings from others. The only thing that still interests him is a pet zebrafish he keeps in his room. On the eve of presenting his school report, Ting-an is about to overcome his fears — he just doesn’t know it yet.
