  Depart for a Play “The Labyrinth” at the Century Theatre
(Performed by the students of Beijing Jingshan School)

A lovable boy named Jelly and a kind girl named Pudding are classmates. One day Pudding accompanies Jelly home from school to give the criticism can to Jelly's parents. Upon receiving the criticism can Jelly's parents criticize him for his behavior and lack of effort at school. To escape from his parents' constant preaching, Jelly enters a mystical underground labyrinth with the help of Mr. Alarm. The Labyrinth is an underground castle piled high with various things thrown out by humans (wasters).

While in the labyrinth Jelly meets and befriends the lovely Badudu family, courageous gecko brothers, spring pig, and the three-eared bunny. However, he also meets up with the three mean lords—Big Shoe, Pop Can, Spoiled Apple and their accomplice Spring Leopard who all share a resentment towards humans for having been so wasted. Pudding, Jelly's friend and classmate, later joins him in the labyrinth. The three Lords, with the advice of Spring Leopard, derive a plot to "retaliate" against humans (wasters) by exploiting Jelly and Pudding in an advertisement which encourages wasting. By encouraging humans to waste more, the labyrinth will grow in size thereby increasing the power of the three lords. But, as Pudding is against wasting, she is changed into a frog by Big Shoe. When Jelly attempts to rescue his friend, he is locked inside of a can. Fortunately, through the help of the gecko brothers, Jelly and Pudding are both saved.

However, upon being saved the terrible news comes that Big Shoe's accomplice, Spring Leopard, tricked Mr. Alarm and kidnapped Jelly's parents. In an effort to save his parents, Jelly unites with all the underground residents. Through his personal bravery and wit, Jelly is successful in overcoming all three of the mean lords at their respective gates. Upon their defeat, the three lords are touched by Jelly's continued gestures of friendship. Yet one last obstacle remains. To save his parents from being blasted into outer space in a spaceship, Jelly must decode the lock to the rocket. To do this, he must first remember the date of his mother's birthday. As Jelly is unable to remember, it is only through the last-minute help of the great white whale that her birth date is revealed and Jelly's parents are saved. At last, Jelly is again reunited with his parents.

Through his experience Jelly has learned how to treasure things. He has also learned to be brave and affectionate.
