From this video segment from, Jakers!, we learn that every story has a hero. “Heroes” features Ping, a young hero who proves himself worthy to be the emperor of China by being honest and brave. When the emperor fools all of the other children by giving them boiled seeds to grow, the children dishonestly bring the emperor flowers they imply were grown from the worthless seeds. Although Ping is afraid to face the emperor with his flowerpot that has no flower in it, the emperor rewards him with praise for being forthright and tells him he alone is worthy of being emperor.
