In 1949, Chiang Kai-shek once planned to bomb Beijing during the Nation-building ceremony and Andy’s character Yu Jishi is the plan’s initiator. During shooting, Shanghai’s famous old Science Centre become the Kuomintang’s office. The actors shooting with Andy includes Zhang Guoli, Feng Xiaogang and Sun Xin.
