The Dacian kingdom lies at the eastern border of the Roman Empire.Only the river Danube separates the two mortal enemies.The Dacian king Decebalus knows that soon the vastly superior Roman legions will cross the river and attack Dacia.
After Iron Guard member Paraipan discovers that commissioner Moldovan had staged his own death, he kidnaps Moldovan's son in order to draw him out. Tensions build up resulting in a final epic confrontation.
it is far to be a comfortable film. because it is an exercise to propose a realistic version of the clash between Romans and Dacians. but a forbidden love story, looking for give a symbolic solution, it is not the best choice. like "Dacii", it is a film of portraits. Decebal, Ciungul, Gerula, Andrada, Tiberius, the great priest, the presence of many foreign actors in a Romanian film, as proof of the independent policy of Comunist Party in the Eastern Europe are pieces defining a film who , not ignoring the sins, remains interesting.
