Synopsis: War feasts upon death. Its greedy appetite carries away many a life on the battlefield, and soldiers must be ready to die at any time. Yet all these sacrifices can be given meaning and reason with honor. A weathered witness of war's insatiable appetite, Guzidi, Captain of the Ninth Company, will struggle his entire life to return honor to his forty six men and their self-sacrifice. The year 1948 witnessed the launching of the Huaihai Campaign during the Chinese Civil War. In one of Chinese history's deadliest battles, thousands from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the Nationalist Army (KMT) fell in the battle that took place between Xuzhou and Bengdu. It was amid this bloody fight that Captain Guzidi led the Ninth Company infantry unit on a sniper mission. His orders were to fight the KMT Army until the retreat assembly call was sounded.

And stole their uniforms

He disobeyed army discipline

And disgraced our entire regiment

The Division Commander has ordered us

To punish him

for his misconduct


The regiment's Party leadership has decided

To punish all those involved accordingly


The 9th Company's troops are to be transferred

Captain Gu Zidi's forty six men

Will all move to the regiment's Advanced Guard

Until further instruction


Captain Gu Zidi, of the 9th Company

ls to be punished for his mistake accordingly

He's to be locked up for three days.

Captain Gu

Have something to eat

The food is getting cold

You know when l last had a bed under me?

l am having the ball of my life

Food can wait

l guess l caught up on my rest

This is the best l've felt since

joining the battalion

This barn is huge

How much grain can it hold?

What a waste locking us up in here

What's your name?

Wang Jincun

What's your job?

l was a teacher

You were busy writing when l first got here

You were still writing when l woke up

What are you writing?

A letter home

To your wife?

And this?

Did your wife knit it?



l heard them say

A teacher in the 1st Battalion

Pissed in his pants in battle

And he was disciplined

Are you the one?

No? Not you?

Who cares if it is?

All you did was pee

That's better than getting killed

Bullets flying everywhere

Grenades exploding down your pants

Even a god would pee

Don't get the wrong idea

Moving you to the front

lt's not part of the punishment

lt shows our trust in you

l've seen the old mine battlefield

The location is good

lt's much higher

than the north bank

They won't be able to see our movement

We'll get the upper hand by securing it

We planned to

transfer two companies from the 2nd Battalion
