As China's great train, the Shanghai Express, is being boarded and loaded with baggage, a mixed assortment of characters run elbows, a lady of questionable reputation known as "the White Flower of the Chinese coast; a British Medical Corps officer; Warner Oland, a shady half-caste merchant with a penchant for carrying a cane; and Anna Mae Wong, an American-bred Chinese prostitute with plans for starting anew in marriage. The time of the journey is one of great political unrest, with the possibility of bands of rebels attacking the train looming large.
