City of Life and Death brutally depicts the massacre and torture of the Chinese people of Nanjing by the Japanese at the onset of the Second Sino-Japanese War. Men, women, and children attempt to escape, and some make it to the safety zone overseen by western businessmen and missionaries. Yet the Japanese ruthlessly round them up, subjecting women and children to rape and executing men en masse. Its focus on multiple characters emphasizes the over 300,000 lives lost.
