The Red Feminine detachment is a communist company exclusively made of women from the Island of Hainan. In 1930, Nan Batian, a land owner, kills Wu Qionghua ‘s father. Wu Qionghua is his slave, and from then, she starts hating him. She is obsessed by the idea to run away. At every attempt, she is caught and locked up in a dark place full of water. Hong Changqing, an agent of the Communist Party, comes to Nan Batian under the disguise of a rich oversee Chinese man. Witnessing Qionghua’s tortures, he helps her to flee and introduces her to the Red Feminine detachment. Despite orders, she is obsessed with the desire to take revenge and fire at her master. Her comrades teach her that revolution does not consist in satisfying one’s desire of vengeance, but in fighting together against land owners. The influence of her comrades and of Hong, her saviour, gradually turns her into an exemplary combatant.

The film got the Hundred Flowers Award which was created in 1962.
