Honghu Lake is known for the story of "Red Guards" against autocracy in the 1930s. The old heroes are now revived on the small screen in China.

The TV drama will be aired on China Central Television on Monday. The two leading figures of the original true story were re-invented for the TV version. The director has promised more complicated suspense, as the story revolves around a four-sided power struggle.

Viewers will also hear some familiar songs and tunes of the opera inspired by the same story of the Red Guards of the Honghu Lake of 1956.
