Xu Yuan (Xia Yu) is an ordinary antiques shop owner. One day, a visitor lets him know that he’s involved in a conspiracy he could never have imagined: A legendary treasure is actually linked to him in many ways and a mysterious office has already arranged his fate. He embarks on a dangerous journey to clear his family’s name and tear down a counterfeiting organization.
Operation Moscow is based on the real “Trans-Siberian Train Robbery” incidents in 1993. An organized gang robs Chinese merchants and rapes women on the Trans-Siberian train, which travels six days from Beijing to Moscow. A special-investigation team led by Chen Er Li (Xia Yu) is formed and a thrilling hunt for the gang leaders ensues.
