A ragtag buch of young boys, plus a too compliant uncle, steals a truck to resell it to some local mobsters. When a little girl – who is told to have been missing all day long by the bullettin – pops up from a blanket on the back seat of the truck, the mission will utterly swap direction, and things will never be the same for all the boys. Yi Yang crafts a fast-paced road movie on the heels of movies like The Snatch and Lock&Stock: an unexpected quest through which Yi portraits the little and out-of-the-way Chinese town where she was born and raised.

Yi Yang was shortlisted in 2016 by BCBF for the Illustrators Exibition and she has been working with many Italian and Chinese publishers. BAO Publishing released her two graphic novels Aiuto! and Easy Breezy.
