Part of the series "Événements de Chine" and depicts the Taiyuan massacre during the Boxer Rebellion between 1899 and 1901 where 45 Christian missionaries and village Christians, including children, were ordered to be killed. The film is a fake historical reenactment photographed at a military tournament in France. In the 1903 British catalog of Pathé, this film is numbered 534.

The Boxers, having seized a missionary, hang him by the feet above ablaze; they also set fire to the mission buildings. A detachment of allied troops arrives with bayonets and, charging the Boxers, puts them to flight after having killed a large number of them.
