Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Chinese Army to defend the country from Huns, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. She is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. Disguised as a man by the name of Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her innermost strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation… and a proud father.”

This film is baed on Disney’s Mulan (1998) and “Ballad of Mulan” by Guo Maoqian, the story of a legendary/fictional female warrior from the Northern and Southern dynasties period of Chinese history.
