Every Sunday, Xiaojie and his grandma take the bus to the last stop on Market Street. But today, Xiaojie is very unhappy. Along the way, he kept complaining, "Why can't I have my own car like my friends?", "Why do I have to wait for the bus in rainy weather?". "Why can't I have a walkman like my other friends?"
For every question, his grandma gave him an enlightening answer, allowing him to discover the beauty and happiness that he has been neglecting in daily life- the bustling city that is actually full of life; the wonderful music that plays everyday; the love that exists between people- All these can give us magical powers. Grandma uses wisdom to guide Xiaojie, gifting him with a pair of beautiful, kind eyes and letting him feel the warmth between the hearts of people.
