Schoolgirl Mitsuko tries to protect half-Chinese transfer student Yu-Lian from bullies. That night, she discovers Emily, an old American doll. Given to a Japanese child during an exchange in 1921, it was hidden from the "doll burnings" of the anti-Western war period and saved by a brave young girl (Mitsuko's grandmother) from bayonet practice. At the next day's show-and-tell, Mitsuko tells the story of Emily and encourages Yu-Lian, who has brought her own doll, the beautiful Feng-Qun. When Feng-Qun's ribbon blows away and is caught in a tree, even the bullies cooperate in retrieving it.

Combining treacly internationalism with inadvertent comedy, especially when a girl donates her underwear to help make a rope, this story also suffers from flabby editing (why have a talking doll and a doll fairy?) characteristic of a creator with whom nobody dares argue, in this case Daisaku Ikeda, the leader of the Soka Gakkai Buddhist organization. But it is superior to his Fairground in the Stars, cleverly appealing to children by using toys as allegories for human suffering and heroism.
