Based on a true story, British journalist George Hogg transitions from documenting the Sino-Japanese War to actively resisting it. After photographing and writing about the Rape of Nanjing, Hogg escapes execution with the help of a Chinese communist and Australian nurse. They take him to an orphanage and task him with caring for the 60 children. When Chinese nationalists want to conscript the young boys, Hogg leads them on a 700 mile trek across the Gobi Desert to safety.
