All Clark Yuan wants is to see his fellow countrymen's lives improve. He joins the KMT, hoping to play his part to make China a better place. He vows to Eden, the beautiful Jewish girl he admires from afar, Shanghai would be her forever home.
But power and money are at stake. The line of good and evil shifts. To achieve his ends, he must bargain with the devils. How much of his soul would he sacrifice to reach the greater good?
Fleeing the rise of the Nazis, Eden Levine came with her family to Shanghai, hoping to build a new life.
