"A Jewish girl in Shanghai," based upon the popular graphic novel by Wu Lin, is the first Chinese animated film to portray the Holocaust. ... [The] film offers ... a glance of Shanghai's Little Vienna - the neighborhood where around 30,000 Jewish refugees found shelter during [World War II]. The difficult subject is brought to life through ... Shanghai's Animation Film Studio. This ... family film centers around the warm friendship between Rina, a wide-eyed European Jewish schoolgirl and A-Gen, a Chinese pancake seller, who teach each other about their distant worlds as Shanghai struggles beneath its own ... Japanese occupation. Cared for by a local family, Rina and her younger brother Michaeli adapt quickly to Shanghai life, until a sudden event throws the precarious balance of their lives into question once again."--Container.
