This obscure wartime travelogue details the journey of news correspondent Rey Scott from Hong Kong to Tibet. It's hardly an easy trek, requiring Scott to negotiate the treacherous Burma Road and the Red Highway in Mongolia. Along the way, Scott's 16-millimeter camera records a variety of fascinating sights, some of them never before seen on film. The film takes an ominous and then horrific turn at the end, as Scott shows the appalling results of the Japanese bombing of Chungking. Kukan (the Chinese word for "Courage") was originally designed to stir up audience sympathy for China in their ongoing struggle against Japan -- as if such sympathies still needed stirring up as late as 1941.
