A little girl named Fei Fei loved being told the story of the moon goddess Chang'e who took a potion for immortality, causing her to become a goddess and ascend to the moon without her lover Houyi, and awaits for him on the moon. In preparation for the annual Moon Festival, Fei Fei and her family make mooncakes for the village. However, Fei Fei's mother falls ill, and gifts her daughter a bunny named Bungee, before passing away.
