Kukan--the heroic battle--is a vital presentation of all that the name, China, connotes--its soil and its people; its vast wastes and towering mountains; and its fight for freedom from Japan and the past. This saga of a nation struggling to be born, of a people trying to unite and find greatness is the story of Chiang Kai-Shek and the young Republic of China. It is also the story of war fought from Burma to Tibet and culminating in the bombing of Chunking. It has the guts that no other movie has and shows how terrible this war into which we soon may go, can be.
