The Chinese who had lived miserable lives during the eight years of the War of Resistance Against Japan had longed for the victory. However, they ended up with more disappointment after the declaration of the long-awaited end of war. This is what Cao attempted to express for the script of the movie. As the director, he had filmed the movie for almost four months. When talking about its theme, he said: There is a couplet in China, which means everyone sweeps the snow in front of his house without any concern about the frost on other’s roofs and the banner is to mind your own business. As far as he is concerned, what the couplet tries to express is inappropriate. What we should do is to distinguish right from wrong and to commit to the right without any fear of troubles and injustice. It was already the spring of 1948 when the film was released.
