Summary

  • In 20th-century China, concubinage was a common practice. Even in China, though, the love relationship between the country's most powerful man and his concubine was something extraordinary. Was the reason behind the marriage of Chiang Kai-shek and Soong May-ling love, or was it a political maneuver? Charlie Soong, the father of May-ling and the political partner of Chiang, was a key figure in determining China's destiny due to his wealth and prominent social stature. The intimate history of the Chiang and Soong families is explored in this program.
