Synopsis

The Henan province disaster was one of the darkest moments in 20th-century Chinese history – a humanitarian crisis first sparked by drought, then compounded by a combination of windstorms, government corruption, and a war with Japan.

In the midst of the devastation, an American journalist (Adrian Brody) searches for answers, and slowly comes to understand that there may be a greater connection between these tragedies and his political theories than he once thought.

Starring Brody, Zhang Guoli, and Tim Robbins, this tragic retelling of events is  based on Liu Zhengyun's bestselling novel Remembering 1942.  Director Feng Xiaogang follows up his blockbuster real-life disaster movie AFTERSHOCK with this unflinching portrayal of one of the darkest times in China's WWII history, resulting in a loss of at least three million people.
