Synopsis

Yi is a teenager from Shanghai whose mother and grandma are incredibly overprotective of her in the absence of her father. She yearns for adventure so after discovering a Yeti, long believed to be a legend, on her rooftop, she resolves to help reunite him with his family at the highest point on Earth. Alongside her mischievous friends Jin and Peng, they embark on an epic quest to take the newly-named ‘Everest’ back home but must stay one step ahead of a wealthy collector who is intent on keeping the Yeti for himself. Breathtaking animation is used to tell an extraordinary, globetrotting story about following your dreams and why conservation is important.
