TIENJIN (PROSPECTIVE TITLE)

TIENJIN (PROSPECTIVE TITLE)
By Scott Becker

GENRE: Action
LOGLINE:

The ironic historical drama of late nineteenth century colonial expansion unfolds in a tale of Qing dynasty China transformed by a peasant revolution leading to the expedition composed of a multinational force of eight Western nations. The narrative is expounded through the viewpoint of individuals from the Sikh Frontier forces of the British Raj.

SYNOPSIS:

It is 1900, and the north of China is ablaze with starvation and revolution leading to the massacre and ousting of Christian missionaries from Shandong province. A hastily assembled multinational relief force strikes out from the besieged concession city of Tienjin. One contingent of Sikh soldiers raised from the Northern Frontier of India is thrust into a relief column that must secure the city and move on to Peking while simultaneously enduring the scorn of their European allies. The final victory sees the Sikhs out ahead of their own.
