Set in 1930s Shanghai, where a blind American diplomat develops a curious relationship with a young Russian refugee who works odd -- and sometimes illicit -- jobs to support members of her dead husband's aristocratic family.
The racehorse scene uses stock footage taken from Seabiscuit (2003).
We all have to fall in love from time to time... To feed our daughters, and our mothers. And sisters.
A song performed in a night club early in the movie is the original Cninese (Mandarin) version of what became an international hit for Frankie Laine in the early 50s under the name of "Rose Rose I Love You". The original was written in 1940, while the scene was set in 1937.
