Road To Dawn: Newly reissued and unabridged DVD (2016)
The movie Road to Dawn (2007) is based on the story of Dr Sun Yat Sen as a revolutionary in Penang, Malaysia, in the year 1910. Although it incorporates fictional elements, the movie is based on historical events.

After his ninth failed attempt to stage a revolution in China, Dr. Sun Yat Sen alias Sun Wen (Winston Chao) is once more a political exile with a price on his head.
Turned away from Japan, he sails to the Nanyang and finds himself in Penang, where businessman Xu Boheng (Wang JianCheng) and his feisty Nyonya daughter, Xu Dang Rong (Lee Sin Chet) offer him sanctuary in their home. Dang Rong's life changes when she meets Dr. Sun at her mother, Mrs. Xu's (Vickey Liu) grand birthday celebration. Boheng is forcing Dang Rong to marry the son of his British business friend but unknown to her, her lover Lou Zhaoling (Zhao Zheng) is a Qing secret agent with orders to assassinate Dr. Sun. Meanwhile, Chen Cui Fen (Wu Yue) has just arrived to join Dr. Sun, not just as his second wife but also to thwart the assassin...
The movie brings together a cast and crew from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia. It stars Taiwanese actor Winston Chao as Sun Yat Sen (historical character); Angelica Lee Sin Chet as Xu Dan Rong, a Penang Nyonya (fictional character); Wu Yue as Chen Cuifen, Sun Yat Sen's second wife (historical character) and Zhao Zheng as Luo Zhaoling (fictional character).
