The film uses several unknown martyrs who died in the revolution as the entrance, tells the story of faith, and shows the choices of young people a hundred years ago when the nation was in danger.

As director Feng Xiaoning said, this film will tell young audiences a legendary youth story.

“Reality is the primary factor for us to build trust with the audience. We are precise within our capacity.” Feng Xiaoning said that this film refers to the artistic style of classic films in Chinese film history. Trying to find the answer to a question from the short and brilliant youth lives of a group of classmates and teenagers—why did they abandon their wealthy life a hundred years ago and were willing to embark on a road full of dangers and deaths? What belief made them persist in this way?

In the film, several students go to deep coal mines, run night schools for miners, help miners defend their rights, and organize the details of student struggles. This situation is also a vivid portrayal of countless people with lofty ideals and the exploration of saving the country a hundred years ago. (End)
