    An award winning film documenting the forgotten story of a group of Chinese peasants who were sent to a war they didn’t understand.

    The First World War erupted in 1914. By 1916 Allied powers had suffered devastating casualties. As a result British, French and Chinese governments formed an agreement to send almost 140,000 Chinese laborers to the battlefields of Europe. 85,000 of these men were locked in CPR train cars and shipped in miserable conditions across Canada at a time when Canada was imposing a head tax on Chinese to prevent them from immigrating to Canada.

    Using unseen archive footage, interviews, and visually rich re-enactments the film follows Zhang Yan as he searches to restore the collective memory of those in China and around the world who have largely forgotten about the 140,000 men who made this journey 100 years ago.
