Directors Sergei Bodrov, Ivan Passer and Talgat Temenov’s epic picture relates a foundation myth of modern Kazakhstan, in which one warrior must unite warring tribes under one banner, to protect the Kazakh land from the marauding Jungar tribe.  Warrior Mansur must also balance devotion to his comrade in arms, and to the woman that they both love.  An international cast and sweeping visuals supplement this uniquely Kazakh story of national identity in formation.
