Turning Red closely follows the life of 13-year-old Meilin Lee, a dedicated Chinese-Canadian student who also constantly helps with chores at the Chinese temple her family runs in Toronto.
Mei leads a life like any other teenager her age: she has a group of close friends, is a fan of a boy band, and tries to balance her personal life with her responsibilities. One day, without warning, Mei transforms into a big red panda.
