At the end of January 49, during the civil war in China, there was a terrible tragedy, which was the basis of the film The Crossing. Steamer Taiping came from the Shanghai port and held in the direction of Keelung - Taiwanese port. Passengers had accumulated more than 1500, which created a strong overload of the vessel, which is on engineering calculations can withstand no more than 580 people. But the owners of the ship ignored the potential danger, without taking any special measures. Passenger train consisted entirely of refugees who are in a hurry to leave their homeland, escaping from the forces of Communist China. At night, January 26 Taiping failed to miss a cargo ship, Jin-Yuan. After the collision, the ship with the refugees began to sink rapidly - people perished in the icy water, and the hope of salvation became every minute illusory. The heroes of this dramatic story became refugees, who were at this time on the boat. We will get acquainted with the events that led each of them on board the ill-fated ship.
