“To My Wife” is based on the Huanghuagang Uprising, also known as the 72 martyrs of Yellow Flower Mound. In the uprising, 72 young men sacrificed their lives for the 1911 Revolution. One member of the martyrs, named Lin Juemin, wrote a letter to his wife before his death. He expressed his love for his wife and his country in the letter, a moving homage throughout the ages.
