In 1937, the Japanese army launched a full-scale invasion of China, which aroused a strong patriotic fervor among the Chinese people.
A progressive young girl in Shanghai, Lan Yanzhi, and her college classmates also called for a boycott of Japanese goods in solidarity with the soldiers at the front.
However, because of a propaganda activity, Yanzhi was coincidentally involved in the Sino-Japanese conflict; she actively worked for the anti-war despite her own safety, and after making achievements, she hoped to serve her country by fighting against the war.
After joining the Kuomintang, Yanzhi had experienced battles of all kinds, but she discovered the negativity and degradation within the Kuomintang.
When her beliefs wavered, Yanzhi was guided and inspired by the communist Zhou Yuhao and joined the Communist Party to continue the anti-Japanese march.
During the hard struggle, Yanzhi gradually grew up and finally became a qualified Communist Party member.
