Aka "The Children of Huang Shi". In 1930s war-ravaged China, a young English journalist named George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) leads 60 orphans through miles of treacherous terrain, over the Liu Pan Shan mountains and into the safety of the Mongolian desert. Joining them on this arduous journey are an Australian nurse (Radha Mitchell) and the fearless leader of a Chinese partisan group (Chow Yun-Fat). A compelling true story, beautifully photographed amidst breath-taking scenery; and it may interest Kiwi viewers to know that alongside Hogg was New Zealander Rewi Alley. It is possible Rewi was written out for political reasons as he was a communist and reportedly gay - perhaps too much for the Chinese co-producers.
