About the Movie

Inspired by true events, "Children of the Silk Road" is a portrayal both sweeping and intimate of people who, thrown into an unexpected and desperate situation, discover their capacity for love and responsibility. It tells how a young Englishman, George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) came to lead sixty orphaned boys on an extraordinary journey of almost a thousand perilous miles across the snow-bound Liu Pan Shan mountains to safety on the edge of the Mongolian desert. And of how, in doing so, he came to understand the true meaning of courage.

Customer Reviews


This is simply a beautiful movie... from the strength of the story line, the orphaned boys, the magnificent scenery, the horror of conflict, the personal failure and growth, and the hope that carries through. There are lessons to be learned from this life we live. This movie reminds us of what we need as humans, as people - love, stability, warmth and friendship. Simply beautiful.

Great movie!
