    Background: Kang Sun Steel Plant - birth place of the 'Flying Horse Movement' 0 is one of the biggest steel bases in Korea. It stands on the bank of the Ta Tung River in Pyongyong's south-west.

    The US aggressors dumped more than 11 thousand bombs on Kang Sun during the war. The steel plant was levelled to the ground.

    In 1953, Kan Sun was one of the places visited by Premier Kim 11 Sung less than a week after the war ended. The Premier called on the workers to rebuild Kong Sun into a modern steel base and do so in the spirit of self-reliance.

    Many difficulties were surmounted by the works. In forty days, the electric furnace was repaired and commissioned. In 1956, the workers of Kang Sun Steel Plant initiated the 'Flying Horse Movement' to produce more steel for the state. Film presents shots of the work team of the No. 3 electric furnace which has twice won the title of 'Flying Horse'. All kinds of cooling facilities are provided for the workers in summer.

    There is no end to the miracles created by Kang Sun's workers. Taking advantage of local conditions, they improved the smelting method so that the time needed for smelting steel is cut down by a third.

    In the steel rolling mill, the high speed automatic rolling machines were assembled by the workers.

    Inspired by the 'Flying Horse' spirit and full of confidence, Kang Sun's workers are working energetically to supply the country with more and better steel.
