China has seen many rev­o­lu­tions through­out its long his­tory, but Chi­nese fem­i­nist rev­o­lu­tion­ary Qiu Jin has stood out among the many. In this bi­o­graph­i­cal film, we fol­low the life of Qiu Jin (Huang Yi) as she in­flu­ences the up­ris­ing against the Qing Dy­nasty in the An­hui prov­ince. But it all starts some­where – when Qiu Jin was just a lit­tle girl. Hav­ing re­sisted the com­mon prac­tice of feet bind­ing, and pur­su­ing horse rid­ing, mar­tial arts and lit­er­a­ture in­stead, Qiu Jin re­alises that change is re­quired to make China a stronger na­tion. Also star­ring Kevin Cheng, Pat Ha, and Den­nis To.
