The Children of Huang Shi SynopsisBased on real events, The Children of Huang Shi is a sweeping but intimate story set against war-torn China in the 1930’s.

Together they rescue 60 orphaned children, leading them on an extraordinary journey across hundreds of miles of treacherous terrain, through snow-covered mountains and an unforgiving desert. Along the way they discover the true meaning of love, responsibility and courage.

I feel like this movie has been sitting around in some closet for years. I mean, I've been hearing about it forever. Glad to see it's finally opening in America, tho.
