Set during the turbulent months of the Tiananmen Square disturbances of 1989, Australian-born Leah and her Malaysian-Chinese mum travel around China searching for Joan's family to find the other half of an ancient coin left by Joan's father. The search for the coin leads them to experience much of China and a range of lifestyles.
