Set during the Sino-Vietnamese War, this film explores class tensions and asserts the primacy of Communist Party and state loyalty. Soldiers within a company of the People’s Liberation Army derive from peasant origins while its officer is the son of a well-connected Party official in Beijing. The soldiers embody the peasantry's generational sacrifice of sending its sons to war to defend the nation-state and promote the Party’s goals. The officer shows familial loyalty in his efforts to stay alive.
