While her family makes and sells yummy moon cakes that are popular in the neighborhood, Fei Fei loves hearing legends from her mom, especially one about a giant space dog taking bites out of the moon, thus explaining its phases and the myth of Chang’e (Phillipa Soo), the Moon Goddess who was in love with an archer named Houji. Chang’e had two immortality pills, one for her and one for her love but accidentally swallowed them both. As an immortal she was pulled away from her love and floated to the moon with only a Jade Rabbit for company as she hopes forever for a reunion.
In this animated musical, Fei Fei is a young girl who believes in the legend of the Moon goddess Chang’e. After her mother dies, Fei Fei continues to believe in the legend while the rest of her family drifts away from belief. Fei Fei decides to build a rocket ship to fly to the Moon to gather proof of Chang’e’s existence. However, when her future stepbrother Chin nearly ruins the mission by stowing away on the ship, Fei Fei and Chin soon find themselves in an unexpected world that does not live up to Fei Fei’s expectations.
