The Children of Huang Shi stars Michelle Yeoh, Chow Yun Fat and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Set in 1937, George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) inexplicably finds himself leading a group of sixty orphan Chinese boys on a journey over the Liu Pan Shan mountains to the Mongolian desert to escape the Japanese invasion. Michelle Yeoh plays Madame Wang, an aristocrat who is also fleeing the invasion.
“George took care of a group of children and what he did was in some ways much more valuable and courageous than fighting the war. Through his actions he discovered that he didn’t need to be on the battlefield to be heroic, he found heroism inside of himself.”
– Roger Spottiswoode (Director)
