The Song of Mu Lan

The Song of Mu Lan

Mu Lan is at her loom when she hears the Emperor's call to arms. She rides off to war in her father's stead, embarking on a journey of 10,000 miles for ten years. Her courage and valor bring her to the Emperor's attention and to the Golden Court. When offered whatever she wishes as a reward, she asks only to go home. There she surprises her mother, father, sister, and brother — but it is her comrades in arms who are most surprised of all.
