Lyon in the southeast of France: In her grandparents’ attic, Lucie finds an old suitcase filled with mysterious Chinese letters. Does it belong to her great-grandfather Yaotao who emigrated in the thirties from China to France? All of a sudden the characters begin to dance and tell her Yaotao’s story.
Yaotao’s heritage is a atmospheric journey back in time, written for both young and old, and a story about the arrival in a new culture.
