More than two thousand years ago, the Han Emperor sent his army to the far Western border of China, way beyond the Gobi Desert, in order to subdue rebellious tribes.
It was a treacherous and inhospitable zone where, when winter came, the land belonged to the wolves. After much war and bloodshed, Commander Lu and his men have given up battle and begun their retreat.
Trapped by a severe blizzard, they take refuge in the village of the ‘cursed’ Harran tribe, where Lu commandeers a shack and finds a beautiful but mysterious Harran widow.
The pair become embroiled in a passionate affair but Lu does not comprehend the great price he will pay for their illicit passion.
This beautifully shot epic is replete with passion, drama and stunning battle scenes that will keep you gripped until the very end.
Bonus features: Dances With Wolves – The Making Of The Warrior and the Wolf; Theatrical Trailer.
