Scene I The Origin of Shenhu
More than 2000 years ago, Shanghai became the fief of Chunshenjun Huang Xie, one of the "Four Lords of the Warring States". At that time, the rivers here often flooded, and people suffered from it. Chun Shenjun led the people to successfully conquer the floods. This spirit of defying hardships and facing difficulties became an important beginning of the spirit of Shanghai. In order to commemorate Chun Shenjun's immortal achievements and the great wisdom of Shanghai's ancestors, later generations called Shanghai as "Shen" and the fishing tool "Hu".
Scene II 1921
From the water town in the south of the Yangtze River with white walls and tiles to the busy wharf with five trade ports, the girl Qiaoqiao came to Shanghai, where she was looking for her childhood sweetheart, and found her revolutionary faith in the current situation of internal and external troubles and national peril. 1921 was destined to become a highlight in Shanghai's history. The convening of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China announced the solemn birth of the Communist Party of China, and Shanghai became the place of departure for the Red Revolution.
Scene III Modern Times
Shanghai in the 1930s has the reputation of "Oriental Paris". After the "September 18th" Incident, the three eastern provinces and many parts of northern China fell one after another. The prosperous Shanghai Bund is also facing a crisis, and the undercurrent is surging behind the modern era. With the full-scale outbreak of the Battle of Songhu, Qiao Qiao organized the Shanghai cultural field medical team in accordance with the Party's instructions to participate in the battle of anti-Japanese and national salvation.
Scene IV Shanghai Family
Shanghai experienced the war of resistance against Japanese aggression and the war of liberation, and ushered in the founding of New China. Qiaoqiao was also closely linked to this city. From going to the mountains and going to the countryside to supporting the third line and then to reform and opening up, Qiaoqiao’s family history shows the changes of the times in Shanghai and the sacrifices and dedication made by the people of Shanghai. This is Shanghai spirit and the responsibility of Shanghai people!

The world meets here, and the East and the West communicate here. The excitement of the World Expo is still continuing, and the charm of the Asian capital of performing arts is blooming in Songcheng, Shanghai. The wind comes from the sea, and a big "Shen" is written in the east of the world!
