376 AD – A refugee crisis in the Roman Empire. The destiny of a Germanic family and its tribe reveals a historical perception on today migration movements. Inspired by actual events.
The Gothic female warrior, Elja, is forced to give in to the Huns and seek shelter for herself and her clan in the Roman Empire. Elja tries to understand the Roman plans in spite of the language barrier. She feels helpless at the mercy of her alleged allies and their laws. Why is she being treated like a prisoner of war? Why can’t she travel onwards with her clan? What will happen when the Huns reach their camp?
