Confucius was a great man of China ,the film is mainly about the story from his middle age to his death.
The film is divided into three parts.
In the first part, Confucius tried very hard to stop the custom of burying living person with dead.
After saving some poor children successfully, he got the attention of the emperor, and became an political officer.
Then focus on Confucius's political career.
Confucius devoted himself for political affairs, but can't be well trusted by the emperor.
So he traveled around nations with his disciples, to promote his political ideals.
During the 14 years of the journey, Confucius encountered some frustration, but broadened his horizons.
Eventually, Confucius returned to Lu. He was no longer involved in politics, but devoted the rest of his life for writing and teaching. Hopefully, his ideals can be put into practice one day.
