In the 15th century, China was already a political and economic powerhouse in Southeast Asia, when the reigning Ming emperor decided to launch sea expeditions to countries beyond the horizon. This film explores this unique chapter in the China's history through the adventures of Admiral Zheng He: Hui-Chinese court eunuch, mariner, explorer, diplomat, and fleet admiral, who commanded expeditionary voyages to Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and East Africa from 1405 to 1433. Zheng He led seven expeditions of 800 vessels capable of carrying up to 1,000 people each. Based on the maps produced on these trips, some believe these expeditions circumnavigated the globe and may have even discovered the New World before Columbus.
