Plot synopsis
The Sword Bearer is a drama about how society made a monster out of a man and how that man transformed his feelings first into hatred and then into love.
Sasha’s memories of childhood torture him and won’t let him go. He returns to the town of his birth to rid himself of his nightmares and break apart the shackles of his past. But no one in his city is waiting for him. He is viciously beaten over his school sweetheart, and Sasha is not in the habit of offering his right cheek when he is hit in the left. That very evening he cripples his assailant and finds himself wanted by both bandits and the police. But they can’t even suspect that he possesses a supernatural power that is able to destroy anything in its path. Trouble lurks for anyone who manages to catch up with him. One day She appears on this path. She loves him and she is not afraid of his supernatural abilities. Will Sasha be able to save love, a thing that is so fragile in this cruel world?
