Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
A bloody national rebellion tears apart Poland in this historical drama. Duke Odrowaz (Olgierd Lukaszewicz) is a wounded nobleman who is the only survivor of a violent battle. He is given refuge in a burned-out manor by Salomea (Malgorzata Pieczynska), the daughter of a local land steward. She helps the Duke recover from his injuries, as the Cossacks lay waste to the region. Neither the loyal nobles or the Cossacks are readily embraced by the people who suffer from the war that rages on around them.
