The 7th Dawn is a 1964 movie that explores the suspense and drama that occurs during political struggles. Following World War II, the Communist insurgency separates and divides the loyalties of a close-knit group of friends living in British-dominated Malaya (later to become Malaysia). Ferris (William Holden), an American, owns a successful rubber plantation and is involved with the beautiful Eurasian political activist Dhana (Capucine). Their old friend Ng (Tetsuro Tembo) leaves Malaya and returns a changed man, recreating himself as a tyrannical Communist leader who engages in acts of terrorism. When Ferris and Dhana are asked to help bring Ng to justice, their loyalty towards their old friend prevents them from disclosing his location. In a now strife-riddled land, Dhana and Ferris become embroiled in both political skirmishes and their own personal struggles and passions. When Dhana is wrongfully accused of a crime and finds her life in precarious danger, Ferris and Ng are both called upon to save her. The film presents both a larger issue of political struggle and a more intimate exploration of the relationship between friends at an unusual point in history.moreless
