It’s 1937, and the city of Nanking, China is about to experience an event so devastating that the affects will be felt for generations to come.
At the hands of Japanese soldiers, men, women, and children are slaughtered by the thousands in the city streets. Those women left alive, are soon sold into the horrifying sex slave market.
For Chinese sisters, Meiling and Elizabeth, it is time for life-altering decisions. After being raped, Meiling flees the city and finds refuge with NORA (Nanking’s Organized Resistance Army), but for Elizabeth, security is found in the arms of the Japanese Commander.
Fueled by rage at Elizabeth’s disloyalty, and the shame she has brought on their family, Meiling plans and executes a solo mission that will take her into the jaws of a hungry lion—the Japanese Commander’s headquarters.
Overwhelmed by grief over the loss of a sister she once held dear, Meiling determines to take her sister’s life……but, at what cost?
