The year is 1241. The Mongol horde led by the cruel Burunda Khan has grown into the largest empire the world has ever known. Destroying everything in its path, the horde reaches the Carpathian Mountains. There, a small group of village hunters band together to resist. Against the ferocious horde, the hunters, led by Zakhar (Robert Patrick, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) face seemingly impossible odds—but stand courageously to protect their village and their very lives.
Based on a novella by Ivan Franko, The Rising Hawk: Battle for the Carpathians is a thrilling historical drama for the ages, featuring Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy), Alison Doody (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), and Poppy Drayton (The Shannara Chronicles). To arms—the Battle has begun!
