From internationally celebrated director Zhang Yimou ("Hero", "House Of Flying Daggers") comes a story of love and war - and a band of outcasts who emerge as unlikely heroes from the shadows of a city's occupation. At once lyrical and visceral, the film enters the apocalyptic world of Nanjing in 1937 only to find a vibrant human story about the invisible people of the city and a series of unexpected relationships that lead to a resonant act of sacrifice. It begins when the danger in the streets of Nanjing throws together a group of opposites - a flock of shell-shocked school children, a dozen seductive courtesans, and a renegade American (Academy Award(R) winner Christian Bale, "The Fighter", "The Dark Knight") posing as a priest to save his own skin, or so he thinks - all seeking safety behind a walled cathedral. Trapped by marauding soldiers, over the next few days the prejudices and divides between them will fall away as they unite around a last-ditch plan to protect the children from impending catastrophe.
