It's Chinese New Year and Sam’s grandparents have given him the traditional gift of lucky money—red envelopes. This year Sam is finally old enough to spend it any way he chooses and plans to shop in his favorite place—Chinatown! But when Sam realizes that his grandparents' gift is not enough to get the things he wants, his excitement turns to disappointment. Then a surprise encounter with a stranger changes his mood.
