TIAN-FU: Son of the Ocean
#School bullying#grandparenting#ecological conservation
Tian Fu was born with a dense covering of body hair, and he was abandoned by his parents shortly after his birth. His grandfather could not bear the fact that Tian Fu was abandoned as a newborn, so he, along with Tianfu’s grandmother, adopted and raised him. His grandparents named him “Tian Fu” which literally means “being blessed with good fortune”. Since he was born peculiar, people around him often give him weird looks that he has to endure. The only time he feels relaxed and free is when he dives deep into the sea, swimming carefree like a fish. Understanding his struggles, his grandparents remain steadfastly by his side and teach him all they know. Mr. Kong, a new teacher at Tian Fu’s school, is empathetic to Tian Fu’s circumstances and responds to his behavior with great patience, allowing him to learn freely and happily, and also empowering Tian Fu to explore marine life with passion. From then on, Tian Fu not only gains confidence, learns the ability to remain calm in the face of various challenges, and even changes everyone’s perception of him!
