This is very well made ( for it's time of course) historical movie. the plot is based on the MAMELUK culture in Turkish Army of 14-19 century. MAMELUKS were special troops of mostly kidnapped and the age of 5-7 Christian ( Georgian, Armenian, Ukranuan) boys, who were turned into Islam, grown up in Sparta-like conditions - in a barracks, all together, and were the best - and personal - troops of Turkish Sultan. One of known Mameluk was Rostan, of Armenian decent, who was Napopeon's personal bodyguard. This exact movie is a story of one of Georigan boys - Gocha - who was kidnapped at the age of 5-7 from his village and became one of the highest officers in Turkish Army. He tried to escape with his love - a girl from Harem, but was caught. the final is very tragic - in a battle the main hero was fighting with a man from opposite army and wounded him badly. While falling from the horse, the wounded guy screamed in Georgian - and finally our hero recognized him as his childhood play friend Khvicha from the same village.
