Young British journalist George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) discovers his capacity for love and responsibility and rediscovers himself, by leading sixty orphaned boys across the snow-bound Liu Pan Shan mountains for 500 perilous miles, to save them from being conscripted in the war with Japan.

Throughout his journey Hogg will find a friend in the leader of a communist resistance group, Chen (Chow Yun-Fat) and he will fall in love with Lee (Radha Mitchell) an Australian nurse, disenchanted with the war and man's capacity to harm fellow human beings.
