Episode 2: The Power Game-Chiang Kai-shek and His Families (Enhanced DVD)
In the political uncertainty of 1920’s China, Chiang Kai-Shek found love in young socialite Mei-ling Soong, daughter of a wealthy and powerful magnate Charlie Soong. The budding romance proves to be as rocky as the political factions Chiang struggled to pacify. The union is anything but universally welcome, as religious and political differences threaten to untie an already-frail knot. See how marriage of Chiang and Mei-ling proves to be a key to the future of China, linking three already-powerful families to one another. This shaky unification becomes a launching pad for some of the most infamous events of the period, including the rise of the New life Movement and the mutiny at Xi’an.
