City of Life and Death tells of the utter chaos and terrible sadness of war in which the occupier and the occupied seem almost equally unmoored by forces they cannot control. Sometimes heroically, sometimes stoically, they do what they must to survive. The film depicts the Chinese soldiers, civilian men, women and children, along with courageous American and European sympathizers who bravely resisted, when it would have been so much easier to accept defeat and death.
