Legend of the forest
The Chinese theatrical feature film Legend of the forest is the epic story beginning in 1945 of Chinese POW Wang Haotian who escapes his captors and is taken in by the indigenous Ewenki people of Northern China and Mongolia.
Finding love from a beautiful Ewenki woman, the couple begin a hopeful life together.
Their journey of love, tragedy and redemption are set against the backdrop of the early days of China's quest to preserve its giant forest region and the challenge of protecting the Ewenki way of life.
