Director Kuofu Chen takes the helm for this historical drama detailing the growing tensions between China and Japan during World War II. The year is 1942. As warfare rages throughout Europe, former Nationalist vice president Wang Jingwei sets up a puppet government that will serve the interests of Japan over his own people. Later, when a high official from the Wang government is assassinated during a ceremony to commemorate the new regime, Japanese Imperial Army Chief Intelligence Officer Taketa begins to suspect that a clandestine resistance group known as "Old Gun" is responsible for the killing.
