The Flowers of War
From the director of Hero and House of Flying Daggers comes a story of war and love. A story about unexpected connections that should lead to heroic deeds. With Oscar winner Christian Bale in the lead role.
We are in Nanjing, China in 1937. The city is occupied by Japanese soldiers and a herd of shocked schoolchildren, a dozen of the city's seductive escort girls and an American deserter who pretends to be a priest to save their own skin, seeking refuge in a church. Surrounded by attacking soldiers, they must work together for the next few days to survive.
