I went to see this movie with a friend right after it opened. The movie went away as quickly as it came out and many people never got to see it. They ( really ) missed a good one. A true story of the strength and faith that many women have and don't realize it until it is tested. This Chinese women ( who could be anyone of us ) is tested to the limits, even through her pregnancies. My favorite part is seeing the Communist commander continue to try and break her even to the point of putting her before a firing squad.......A supernatural event brings her ordeal to an end. She envisioned a life in America with her and her family and she holds to this vision. Heartbreaking, heartwarming. I was truly inspired. I'll never forget it....a Titanic tension with the fact you go home knowing it was all true.
