Storyline

They came from the East. Remains of Tatar hordes of mercenaries of the Mongol chan, highwaymen and highwaymen, but also runaway serfs of Russian princes, unfree, peasants who escaped the servitude of the Muscovite Empire. Early on, this mob of outlaws knew a common goal: to fight the Tsar's and Nogaier-Chane's henchmen in the south of the country. Their territories were feared. Hardly a caravan of traders came unscathed through the wild borderland in the Caucasus, the steppes on the Don or through the river delta of the Dnieper. From the Turktatars they adopted the name "Kazak" and already in the 15th century they caused terror and turmoil in the country. Nevertheless, they were never a people - THE Cossacks - and never will be. That belongs in the realm of legends. This film illuminates the myth of the wild warriors of the Caucasus and the Don.
