From the dark ages of heavy swords, muddy battles and rollicking passions, when great chaos gave rise to heroes, comes the story of Grand Duke Vladimir (Russian heart-throb, Danila Kozlovsky). Prince Vladimir converted Russia to Christianity in 988. After the death of his father, the young prince Vladimir is forced into exile to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk, who has murdered his other brother Oleg and conquered the territory of Kievan Rus. The old warrior Sveneld convinces Vladimir to assemble a force of Viking mercenaries in a quest to reconquer Kiev from Yaropolk. Epic, grand and awe-inspiring Viking channels Game of Thrones and Alexander Nevsky. Directed by Andrei Kravchuk (The Italian and The Admiral) the film was a huge domestic box-office success.
