Family relationship is always one of the most sacred and inspiring connections on earth. No matter how old we are, being with our parents and family is still the happiest moment. It's more difficult for a teenage boy to be hundreds of km far away from his mom for months. Missing her so much, he decided to take on a 400km ride on a bike to come and see her.

It was the heart-touching story of a 12-year-old Vietnamese boy called Pham Van Ngoan. Together with two of his friends, the boy went on the longest trip ever in his life just to see his mother who is working as a worker in the city.

With 40,000 VND (nearly 84 pesos) borrowed from friends and 2 old bicycles, the three took their ride by turns and stopped on the sideroad to rest. They also asked for free water and bread from families they met along the road.

As a part of their secret plan, the young boys didn't let anyone knows about their great ride. Ngoan's grandparents, whom he is living with, were freaked out realizing the missing of their grandson. The local police also rushed to seek the three boys. Meanwhile, Ngoan's parents, who were living in the city also headed back home straight away to find their son.
