Han-han waits by the window, as if he's waiting for someone to come. Han-han sees the big bear coming. Han-han opens to door for the big bear to come in. He takes care of the bee stings on the big bear's head, and wraps it with bandages. The big bear thanks Han-han and gives him a big hug. Then the lion and the crane both come visit. They want Han-han to take care of them too. But Han-han still waits by the window, nervous and excited. He is waiting for his father, who hasn't come back in so long…… Under the Same Moon is a song of innocence that is Jimmy Liao's present to the world. Plain and beautiful yet sharp and piercing, it uses a child's pure and eager perspective to reach down and touch the human yearning for calm and peace.
