Arohan is desperate for a guitar, so when his grandmother gives him a plain old bamboo flute for his birthday, he is understandably a little upset. But the xiao is steeped in the myths and legends of China and has its own special magic... A touching and courageous story of a young boy’s love for his family and the magical things that can happen when you listen to your heart.
