Liu Wenzhi stars in this foreign-language biopic as Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the father of the modern Chinese republic who held a degree in medicine but became the fledgling nation's president in 1912 after working to overthrow the Qing dynasty. The film traces Yat-Sen's struggle to lead the people of China through multiple revolutions that resulted in his ultimate triumph, a hard-fought victory that took more than three decades to achieve.
