Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, this "fantasy crossed with Chinese folklore" production is a beautifully-told "Wizard of Oz" riff with a huge heart. Young Minli lives with her parents near Fruitless Mountain, surviving on the meager fare they can produce. Inspired by the rich tales her father tells (and by magical goldfish), Minli determines she will find the Old Man of the Moon who, it is said, knows the secret of good fortune. On her quest she encounters royalty, dragons and several more stories, from which she learns what true good fortune really is.
