However, Fang’s former life of espionage makes him the target of both the Nationalists and the Communists. Together, they struggle across the country in an attempt to flee from his past, but the surrounding danger forces them to separate not only from each other, but also from their own children. Through the bombings of Shanghai, the massacres in Nanjing, and other atrocities that are born through war, their unbreakable bond gives them the strength and courage to endure. Through amazing twists of fate, they overcome insurmountable odds, encounter amazing individuals, and experience heart-warming miracles. Based on the miraculous true story of Jackie Chan’s parents and brought to the screen by two of Asia’s biggest stars, the love between Fang and Chen reflects a generation’s strength in a time of despair, and a country’s hope for a brighter future.
