1941. Hong Kong is occupied by Japanese forces. During the three-year-and-eight-month occupation, the Japanese military pillaged and arrested cultural figures living in Hong Kong. The Dongjiang Guerilla unit was tasked with rescuing these cultural figures and extracting them from the besieged city. The occupation transformed Hong Kong from a prosperous city into a barren land with no food or water. Primary school teacher, Lan (Zhou Xun) – recently separated from her lover, Rong (Wallace Huo) - and her mother (Deanie Ip) are trying to survive this difficult period in their small run-down flat. After the schools are shut down, Lan unwittingly finds herself embroiled in the guerillas' mission to save novelist Mao Dun. In the process, she meets Hei-zai (Eddie Peng), the daring captain of the guerillas. Taking notice of Lan's calm, resourceful nature, Hei-zai recruits her to join the guerillas. Lan sets up a secret liaison point for the guerillas in the city, stealthily delivering intelligence under the watchful eyes of the Japanese military. Worried for her daughter's safety, Lan's mother volunteers to take Lan's place, only to be arrested by the Japanese. To save her mother, Lan is forced to turn to Rong, who now works for the Japanese...
