During the civil war in Spain, Dr. Norman Bethune comes to China, where he is determined to stay until fascism is eradicated. When Japanese troops invade China, he is stationed with Mao's 8th Army Division. In the Wu Tai mountains, he tries to teach the Chinese partisans medical knowledge. Norman Bethune is considered life itself, their savior, their idol. Bethune is a complicated person, a boozing womanizer and hard on those he deals with. Yet the Chinese people believe in him. This is his story, the worship of a hero.
