The series consists of a cover spread and six interior illustrations for a YA book. The story is about three kids, two boys and a girl, growing up in Peking in the 1920s, with a dream of becoming Peking Opera actors. The illustrations show the plots of how they got in touch with active actors to get themselves enrolled in training school, their life as trainees, and includes a period of being popular a few years later. In the end, one of them have to leave due to an accident. The book front cover shows the scene in front of the theater where they played the last show, three kids standing separately on the front and back flaps.
