Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Julie’s grandfather died before she was born, and all she had heard about him was that he was a wealthy playboy with a rags-to-riches story. Julie sets out for rural China to learn more about his life and uncovers the dramatic tale of a man who braved incredible danger in World War II and who reinvented himself as a boy of privilege who fell to poverty and then remade himself into an incredibly successful and wealthy businessman.
