Thirteen-year-old Mei, whose primary concerns include boy bands, bullies, boba, and her 17-year-old convenience store crush, struggles to make her overbearing mother proud while also making the most of her teenage years. And as if being a teenage girl wasn’t hard enough, Mei makes a mortifying discovery – every time she experiences an overwhelming emotion, she transforms into a giant red panda.
