Synopsis

A small town is invaded by Japanese troops. In a high school, the principal, his daughter and a teacher still dedicate to education and firmly believe the country will be recovered one day. The teacher is arrested in a search of resistant members. His mother tries to rescue him and talks about the resistant organization in the school. The teacher is released, but five students are arrested, killed and the principal is put in jail. These events make the teacher more determined to fight against Japanese. Chin Han plays the weak teacher. His interpretation of the psychological transition is brilliant. And this is the first time Joan Lin acted in Lee Hsing’s film.

恬静纯朴的小县城因为日本发动侵略而沦陷,一私立中学的校长,以及他的女儿和一名教员,努力维系着教育这重要的国家命脉。教员在日本人搜捕爆破军火库的抗日份子时,遭到逮捕,而对他呵护备至的寡母为了救他,出卖了活动于中学里的抗日组织,来换得他的释放。但是五个学生因此被捕遭到残杀,校长也受牵连而入狱。这一来,教员抗日意志更加坚决了… 秦汉在本片扮演本性懦弱的中学教师,将人物从害怕日寇到奋起抗日的心理过程表现得层次分明,而林凤娇则首次现身于李行的电影之中。
