It was 1241. In ancient times, when people were different, and the earth was more powerful. Wise Zakhar Berkut, a glorious leader of free Tukhol people, lived in those days. But where there are heroes, villains always appear. Boyar Tuhar Vovk wanted to take over rebellious Tukhol people. And when he met with resistance, he raised revenge in his black heart. A large Mongol army attacked Tukhol camp, following a tip from traitor Tuhar. The youngest son of Zakhar Berkut, Maxim, appears captured by the enemy...

The battle is approaching. The swords of the Tukhol people are sharp, the shields are strong. But even stronger are their hearts, where freedom lives. The enemy came to destroy them. But freedom is indestructible.
