Saving General Yang

Synopsis: Northeast China, early Northern Song dynasty, AD 986. The Khitan army takes its revenge for a past massacre, abducting General Yang Ye (Adam Cheng) and leaving his wife and seven sons to rescue him - and fall into their deadly trap. Led by the first son (Ekin Cheng), the seven - two of whom have never seen combat - set out with a small band of fighters to face an army of thousands, brave the treacherous Wolf Mountain, face the nemesis of their shared history, and find the way back alive - all to bring their father home.

Genera Yang, you go to war!

Take 60,000 of our best men.

Stop the Khitan!

Your Majesty, surely the great Song Empire

has other generals to lead men into war?

Your Majesty,

I beg the honor of being

the one to lead your army.

It would answer the lifelong wish of my

son, who wanted only to serve his country.

Very well.

Lord Pan. I appoint you supreme

commander of our

army against Khitan.

Yes, your Majesty.

Yang Ye. You will lead the

troops at the front line

and assist Lord Pan in

defeating this army.

Yes, your Majesty.

That's the wrong armor. I'm front line

general this time, not supreme commander.

Let me change it.

You mustn't be too

worried, my dear wife.

I'm not worried about

your abilities,

only the complexity

of the situation.

The enemy you face has a

personal feud against you.

And your so-called ally

is a scheming rival.

You mustn't worry. I've fought the Khitan

for years and never lost a battle.

As for Lord Pan, we are

fighting for the same cause.

I will exert every effort

to repel the Khitan.

Together, we will defend

the great Song Empire.

What if this is too

much for Father?

Don't worry, Fifth Brother.

Father has never been

defeated by the Khitan.

This time will be no different.

Father should let me go.

I can lead the front line!

This is war, not a

sparring match.

Have you seen real blood spill?

Have you heard the

splintering of bones?

Do you know what

it's like to see men

dying all around you?

You know nothing about war!

Lord Pan knows nothing about

commanding an army.

He will put Father in danger.

Father will be setting out soon.

You've done all your work,

so why are you all still here?

I don't want to hear what

I just heard ever again.

Yes, Eldest Brother.

Stand up.

Does it still hurt?
