Age 10+ • A Chinese lion is made out of two Kung Fu dancers. One moves the head, while the other shakes the tail. But what happens if the back wants to take the lead? Two rivals from different cultural and family backgrounds are paired together to perform the traditional lion dance that requires not only Kung Fu skills but mutual respect and perfect coordination. To earn his place up front with the head one of them must defeat a number of annoying bullies, convince the teacher of his qualities, and especially, overcome himself.
