It's 1896 and Emily lives a middle-class life in Victoria, B.C., with her parents and two little sisters. She becomes friends with Hing, the family's Chinese servant and, through that relationship, discovers the secret world of Victoria's Chinatown. She also begins to understand the disparity between those like herself who have much, and those, like Hing and the family he left behind in China, who have little.

Baker & Taylor
