Film Synopsis

An action-packed adventure full of swordplay and dynamic animation that sweeps viewers back over a thousand years to the story of Bilal ibn Rabah, taken as a child into a world of greed and injustice. A thousand years ago, one boy with a dream of becoming a great warrior is abducted with his sister and taken to a land far away from home. Thrown into a world where greed and injustice rule all, Bilal finds the courage to raise his voice, determined to make a change for equality. Inspired by true events, this is a story of a real hero who earned his place in time and history.
