The documentary looks at the rapid urbanisation of Asia is spurring on the growth of playgrounds and play spaces where children and communities experience, learn and reimagine urban life. This five-part documentary series examines how such play spaces impact the communities they are built for and reflect on the urban environment they exist in.

Each hour-long episode journeys through various playgrounds and play spaces in Asia – Bangkok, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Sapporo, Suncheon, Singapore, Tainan, Taichung, Taipei – to explore the role of play in cities.
