Synopsis and Plot Summary

It tells the story of the Chinese volunteer army on the Korean battlefield who made sacrifices despite the disparity in military strength in exchange for successive victories.

In the early days of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, the country was faced with "internal and external troubles". Since the outbreak of the Korean Civil War, civilians were brutally bombed in the border between China and North Korea. In order to maintain the hard-won peace, the People's Volunteer Army entered North Korea in October 1950 to mark the beginning of the "War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea" in Chinese history.
