This action-packed story of revenge takes place in the middle of the 13th
century in Russia. This time is marked by the Mongol invasion fromthe
east, Swedish and German assaults from the west, as well as a bloody
struggle among the rival Russian feudal lords. It is the time of uncontrollable
violence. Mongol horsemen, Swedish and German knights
roam the country. Nobody is safe, nothing is secure.
Barbara, a girl from a small village in northern Russia, is in love
and hopes to get married soon. Her father is a professional soldier. He
never had a son, so he taught his daughter to handle a sword, as he
would do with a boy. Barbara never thought to use that skill, but she
had to… After Barbara’s mother and sisters were killed in front of her,
she becomes a cruel fighter. Her mission is now to rid her land of the
invaders, to kill as many of them as possible. ‘An eye for an eye’ – that’s
Barbara’s motto for the rest of her life. ‘She was born for love, but lives
for vengeance’ – says the log line of the movie.
