Sun Wukong, a monkey born from a magic stone, has been imprisoned underneath a mountain for five centuries for his mischief in the heavens. One day, Guanyin told the monkey that the Monk Tan Sanzang will set him free and the monkey will join him on a pilgrimage from China to India. The next day, Tripitaka came to set the monkey free, and the two started their Journey to the West. Along the way, they meet two new friends, Zhu Baijie and the Hermit Sha Wujing, who join them on the journey; together, they face many dangers, evil creatures and sorcerers along the way. It is a great show for kids to learn about traditional China through the journey, as well as to build perseverance and courage when facing difficulty in life.
