The 7th century is the time of the Great Migration of the Peoples. Under the pressure of the invaders the proto-Bulgarian tribes of Khan Kubrat are forced to split in four parts in the hope that one would survive. For twenty long years Kubrat's youngest son Khan Asparoukh led his people across many foreign lands to find eventually a new homeland on the Balkan Peninsula and this time forever. The story is told by Byzantine Velisarius, a hostage with the Bulgarian who witnesses the whole of their difficult march. He sees the suffering of the people whom he already feels close to his heart and the personal drama of their Khan Asparoukh. In 681, in alliance with the local Slav tribes, the proto-Bulgarian deal a decisive blow on numerous Byzantine army, thus 13 centuries ago the foundations of the Bulgarian state and nation were laid down.Written by

Well. this is an excellent try to follow the history of the Bulgarian NAtion- from the time of the Great Khan Koubrat, till the Great transition of part of the Bulgarian nation towards west/ This is a historic movie with a lot of drama, action, love and suspence. The story shows what difficulties did the Bulgarians have to overcome in order to find their better life in place where is nowadays situated Bulgaria. I really liked the original 3 part sequence as it is more detailed and full of more action --- I was 5 years old kid when I watched it for a first time, indeed. Great actors too- Stoiko Peev, Anya Pencheva, etc. Highly recommended
