Yim has no friends in school, because he is too shy to speak. He is alone quite often, because his mother works both a day job and a night job. But at home Yim has the biggest adventures with his imaginary friend Yoyo, the panda bear he has been drawing for years. Together they hunt the dragon that has been plaguing China, or at least Yim’s imagination of his mother land.
Whenever Yim isn’t on his hero’s quest he often visits the wind turbines in the fields on the edge of town, where he spends hours alone to draw them with great precision.
One day a new girl joins Yims class, Lisa. She also has no friends. Yim is a little scared, but also intrigued by this girl that just doesn’t stop talking. Especially when he finds out her father is a wind turbine repair man. They spend more and more time together, which makes Yoyo very jealous. Lisa doesn’t mind Yim doesn’t speak. She is very impressed by his beautiful drawings and very pleased when Yim gives her one of an elephant, her favourite animal.
Yoyo doesn’t trust Lisa and he tells Yim should’t talk to her, but when she invites Yim to join her and her father to go up to the top of a windwill, Yim’s curiosity beats his fear. Once they are several meters from the ground, Lisa’s fear of heights gets the better of her.
