Show Summary

Shanghai 1937, also known as Hotel Shanghai, is a TV-movie melodrama inspired by Vicki Baum's 1997 novel. It follows the lives of a Russian aristocrat couple, Helen and Bobbie Russell, before the "Bloody Sunday" bombing in August 14, 1937 in Shanghai that led to the second Sino-Japanese war. When an all-out-war is launched in the city against the Japanese, Helen finds herself in a very dangerous situation, while her husband is busy visiting opium dens. During the chaos, an American journalist comes to the rescue of Helen and falls for her.
