71 INTO THE FIRE

A story of 71 student soldier trainees who fought an impossible war against seasoned North Korean army during Korean War which broke out in 1950. Based on real history, the film delicately depicts the fierce battle that teenaged student soldiers fall into as they fight to protect the final defense line by themselves when under a surprise attack and their emotions and conflicts as they experience the grown-ups’ war.

“Well made with excellent production values and sets depicting the state of war affairs during the Korean War, 71: Into the Fire will go into my books as one of the best this year in its genre. Highly recommended!”
A NUTSHELL REVIEW

“John H. Lee’s movie does manage to stand on its own two legs, with solid characters and a heroic scenario that moviegoing audiences are naturally inclined to root for.”
