Storyline

Just before the WWII, at the verge of Japanese general invasion to China, XU Wenqiang, a disenchanted college graduate, went to Shanghai and met DING Li, a simple street merchant. The two soon found themselves involved in gang fights involuntarily. By chance XU saved the daughter of gang boss FENG Jingyao, and obtained both the love from the daughter and the admiration from the father. When XU found out FENG was conspiring with the Japanese, XU killed the Jap spy and went on the run just before the wedding with Miss FENG took place. She followed him down to HK, his father's killers too. They killed XU's uncle, thus XU declined the supplication to follow her to Paris. Miss FENG, heartbroken, married DING, now the new gang boss and madly in love with her. XU avenged his uncle by killing FENG, and just when he decided to pursue Miss FENG who was in Paris alone, the gunshots from Jap soldiers put an end to his life. The general invasion of Japanese troops to China began... Written by chinelace

An awesome and gripping series
20 February 2002 | by grufnikSee all my reviews

I remember when this series first came to America on video tape (which was the *new* format), and staying up all night watching each chapter. Perhaps one of the best series I have ever seen in my life, and this was before Hong Kong studios were able to produce slick movies like they do today. For me this was *the* classic epic mini-series; two friends growing up growing apart, life in the mob and the changing times around them.

Would love to see this again, but I have never found this on any format. Heck, I would love to own this on DVD!!!
