When Tan Hou is born with three dragon marks on his body, his parents know he is special. But the dragon is the emperor’s symbol. The emperor’s men come looking for Tan Hou, but he is determined to honour his parents and stand up for his people. This is the story behind the Double Sixth Festival, a day of celebration among the Tujia people of China.
