After the Mukden Incident on September 18, 1931, North China was pushed to a desperate situation. Ren Hong Yi, a Kuomintang military officer, and Zhou Ruo Si who works at the cultural section of the Forbidden City are given the task of safely transporting national treasures further South to ensure that they do not fall into the wrong hands. No matter the challenges they face, they hold on to the belief that as long as its cultural roots remain, China will not fall.
