Set in 18th-century northern Central Asia, a vast region of majestic beauty corresponding to today’s Republic of Kazakhstan, this historical epic tells the story of the boyhood, youth, and coming of age of a man destined to become Abylai Khan, who united the Kazakh clans against the onslaught of formidable, seemingly overwhelming Jungar invaders, and of his wise Sufi teacher. A visually spellbinding, spectacular epic of war, romance, undying friendship and loyalty with a cast of thousands (and no CGI!).
“…fierce battles, a gorgeous landscape and heartfelt performances.”
