In 1937, the Japanese army launched a full-scale invasion of China, sparking strong patriotic sentiments among the Chinese people. Shanghai progressive young woman, Lan Yanzhi, and her university classmates took to the streets together, calling for a boycott of Japanese goods to support the frontline soldiers. However, due to a lecture activity, Yanzhi coincidentally became involved in the conflict between China and Japan. Disregarding her own safety, she actively worked for the resistance movement, and after achieving military merit, she desired to contribute more to the country's cause. After joining the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party), Yanzhi experienced various battles but discovered the internal corruption and negativity within the party. At a time of wavering faith, Yanzhi received guidance and inspiration from a Communist Party member named Zhou Yuhao, and she joined the Communist Party to continue the anti-Japanese struggle. Through arduous and exceptional struggles, Yanzhi gradually grew and finally became a qualified member of the Communist Party.
