It is 1900 and most of China is occupied and/or dominated by European colonial powers (as well as Japan). Throughout the land, the Boxer Rebellion against foreign imperialism is in full swing. The Chinese want to take over control of their own nation. That, of course, means the expulsion of all the European powers. In a train, which is transporting foreign refugees to safety, Tu Hang, the Chinese representative of a German factory, is smuggling grenades. The factory, which is controlled by his clueless, foreign boss, is the perfect cover for the smuggling operation: inspections and oversight of their operations never takes place. Maria, the boss' sister, blindly trusts Tu Hang. He is even capable of convincing her to travel to Peking in the middle of a revolt, rather than returning to Europe, as she originally planned.
