Set in 1920s Shanghai, five idealistic men set out to subvert and ultimately overthrow Japan's control of China through a series of terrorist missions. They call themselves the Anarchists, and are fully devoted to their cause. But when betrayal causes a key mission to go awry, the group's cover is blown. Now that they are exposed, their financial backers lose faith and pull funding. To continue their revolution, the Anarchists will have to resort to robbing banks to finance their rebellion.
