This sweeping historical epic follows Sándor Petőfi, a firebrand young poet whose ‘National Song’ ignites the Hungarian Revolution against the ruthless Austrian Empire on March 15, 1848. As Petőfi bravely carries the torch of the uprising, the Austrians send a devious and formidable secret agent, the Hungarian turncoat Farkas, to stop him at any cost. Their conflict escalates into a dangerous game of wits and cunning, leading to a final confrontation that will decide the country’s fate for generations.
