Thirteen-year-old Mei Lee, who helps at her family’s temple to make her mother proud, tries to be secretive with her friends and family when it comes to her crush, Devon. When Mei’s mom, Ming, finds out about Devin, Ming embarrasses Mei publicly. Being humiliated and upset, Mei has a nightmare about red pandas, and when she wakes up, she wakes up as a red panda. Trying to hide this secret from everyone, Mei learns she transforms into a panda when her emotions are high. After another embarrassing moment at school with her mom, Mei transforms and runs home to hide. The truth comes out when Sun Yee, Mei’s maternal ancestor, tells Mei’s parents that all female descendants have this ability to protect the daughters and villages during wartime. Mei has to come to the decision of mending things with her mother or to keep going behind her back to do things with her friends.
