How War Creates Heroes
Directed by internationally acclaimed and award-winning Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers, Hero, and Raise the Red Lantern) and adapted from Geling Yan’s historical novel 13 Flowers of Nanjing, The Flowers of War tells a genuine story of hope, love, and sacrifice inspired by true-life events.
In 1937, Nanking stands at the forefront of a war between China and Japan. As the invading Japanese Imperial Army overruns China’s capital city, desperate civilians seek refuge behind the nominally protective walls of a Western cathedral.
Here, John Miller (Christian Bale), an American trapped amid the chaos of battle and the ensuing occupation, takes shelter. He is joined by a group of innocent schoolgirls and thirteen courtesans, equally determined to escape the horrors taking place outside the church walls.
Amid the violence of the war, this seemingly disparate group will fight to survive, ultimately risking their lives for the sake of everyone. Facing unimaginable odds, their act of sacrifice will prove that fate has a way of bringing unlikely heroes together.
