In the 14th century, half of Eurasia is occupied by the Golden Horde.
The Golden Horde (Mongolian: Züchi-in Ulus) was a Mongol and later Turkic khanate that was established in the 13th century and formed the north-western sector of the Mongol Empire.

The khanate is also known as the Kipchak Khanate or as the Ulus of Jochi.
After the death of Batu Khan in 1255, the prosperity of his dynasty lasted for a full century until 1359, though the intrigues of Nogai did invoke a partial civil war in the late 1290s.

The Horde's military power peaked during the reign of Uzbeg (1312-41).
The territory of the Golden Horde at its peak included most of Eastern Europe from the Urals to the right banks of the Danube River, extending east deep into Siberia.
In the south, the Golden Horde's lands bordered on the Black Sea, the Caucasus Mountains, and the territories of the Mongol dynasty known as the Ilkhanate.

In the 14th century Europe waits in trepidation for Golden Horde attack, anticipating the destruction of the Christian civilization.
The Great Khan is killed by his brother, Janibek and their mother Taidula should now pass judgment: to persecute the conspirator or to bless him as the new leader.
The film is guaranteed to satisfy the discerning filmgoers with director Andrei Proshkin having recently won the award for best director at the 34th International Moscow Film Festival.
The film "Орда" (The Horde) was produced with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church and is based on one of the episodes in the life of the Russian Orthodox Saint Aleksei of Kiev.

This powerful film not only depicts the plight of the people during the rule of the Golden Horde but raises important questions of a spiritual nature, which makes this film a must see for those viewers searching for a deeper cinematic experience.
