Storytelling and Drawing with Yijing Li

Things to see & do

Walking through a dark forest, a young boy learns to treasure his memories and find his true path.

Lost and alone, a young boy enters the forest not knowing the path that lies before him. He meets a figure called Emptiness who guides him on his way. Together they find keepsakes deep in the forest that trigger memories, both good and bad. As he moves closer to the sun-filled meadow on the other side of the forest, the boy learns that to be truly happy, he must embrace his past.
