A young woman retraces the footsteps of The Long March and encounters untold stories of courage and hope in the face of extreme deprivation and brutality. This is the never-before-told story of the Chinese Red Army’s teenage female soldiers of The Long March, a massive military retreat of over 200,000 troops on foot over 12,500 kilometres that lasted from 1934 to 1937.
Elly, a 28-year-old journalist from Beijing embarks on a 5,000-kilometre odyssey that takes her from Cangxi in Central China to Xingxingxia in the Gobi Desert northwest of China. Along the way she uncovers the tragic and chilling story of the destruction of the Western Route Army, the greatest military failure of the Chinese Red Army.
