A critical and popular success, Red Cherry presents an account of the devastating effects of World War II on children. Two Chinese orphans studying in Moscow at the International School find their new lives shattered when the Germans invade. Chuchu endures psychological and physical violence as a servant girl for Nazi officers, while Luo tries to survive in Moscow and channel his anger into fighting for the Red Army. The film represents the resurgence of Chinese cinema as well as the brief thawing of Sino-Soviet relations in the mid-1980s.
