Plot & Details

As China is ravaged by war in the late '30s, a young English journalist named George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) leads 60 orphans over the Liu Pan Shan mountains and into the safety of the Mongolian desert. Joining the journalist and the children on their arduous journey are an American nurse (Radha Mitchell) and the fearless leader of a Chinese partisan group (Chow Yun-Fat). The journey won't be easy, but as they boldly forge forward through snow-covered mountains and unforgiving desert, they learn the true meaning of responsibility, courage, and love. Jane Hawksley pens a drama based on actual events and directed by renowned filmmaker Roger Spottiswoode.
