A boy who wears a paper bag over his head always attracts strange looks and is shunned by other kids. One day, he sees a girl with a tiger mask making roaring sounds and he follows her out of curiosity. They end up sharing their secrets to each other.

"As kids grow up, they begin to have worries of their own. These worries may not seem great to adults, but they bring great stress to kids. I want to show kids that they are not alone. If you care more about the people around you, then the world will be a better place.
