Though decadent and corrupt,

weakened by politics and war,

the Roman Empire remained

the greatest power on earth.

Then a new people, the Huns,

fierce and independent,

appeared from the east.

An ancient prophecy told of a man

who would one day unite the tribes

and challenge Rome

for the right to rule the world.

- My arrow fell short!

- Aim higher.

The deer outruns it.

Perhaps it's time

you had a stronger bow.

We're on Dunnotis' land.

The chase was long.

We meant no harm.

We'll send him

the antlers as a gift.

Still, we might have been seen.

If Dunnotis complains, we kill him.

Hush, boy. It's foolish for Huns

to kill Huns.

How can we conquer the western lands

if we fight among our own?

Father spoke of the western lands

during the hunt.

He was there once,

when he was young.

Did he discover them?

No, no... Others discovered them

long ago.

How?

A gadfly.

A warrior was taming a stallion,

and a gadfly bit the stallion

so hard, it ran away.

The warrior followed

the stallion into the great marsh.

But there's no way past the marsh.

Oh, the horse found a way,

and the warrior followed the horse,

- and on the other side...

- He found the western lands.

Father says we'll conquer them.

- When the Great King comes.

- How will we know when he comes?

The Great King

will kneel to no man,

and all men will kneel to him.

He will rule the Hun as one nation,

and hold the sword of the war god

in his hand.

And...he'll go to bed

when he's told.

Yes, Father.

(Arrow whistles )

No! Attila, stop!

- I want to help! Let me help!

- Get under this cart.

You stay in there.

Get out of the way.

Father!

Father.

Father...

Get him!

You are Mundzuk's son.

Where is my grandmother?

She is dead. Your father is dead.

That's his reward

for hunting on our lands.

I am your master now.

Kneel.

Kneel!

And I might let you live as my slave.

Hyah! Hyah!

What's your name, boy?

Attila, son of Mundzuk.

Don't you recognize me?

I am Rua, your father's brother,

and it's a long time

since you've seen me.

- My father's dead.

- Yes. Weeks ago.

You've been alone all this time?

You're safe now. Come.

Unless you prefer

living alone on the steppes.

(Indistinct chatter)

(Rua )

What are the three sacred animals?

The wolverine,

because he never retreats,

the sheba,

because she protects her young,

and the horse,

because it is sacred to the war god.

- How many layers in a bow?

- Two of wood, two of bone.

How long must you heat

the bow before you string it?

Until the outer layer sweats.

You've been taught well.

Go to your tent.

He doesn't belong here.

I took my brother's wife

and elder son.

Should I leave the younger

to die on the steppe?

Yes.

Yes, for Bleda's sake.

He's the elder.

He'll get the larger portion

when I die.

There will be trouble between them.

I can see it already.

Who's there?

Who are you?

- Who are you?

- Attila.

- I am Galen.

- What are you?

- A girl. Are you blind?

- You look like an old woman.

- I'm no older than you.

- Why aren't you with the others?

They're afraid of me.

Why are they afraid of you?

Because I read the stars and the sky

and the sun and the moon.

You're a witch.

I had a vision yesterday

that he would be born.

- Who?

- The Great King.

Stay back.

I was born ten years ago.

No.

You were born yesterday,

on the steppes.

Ah, yes.

Yesterday, on the steppes.

(Rua ) Some say it takes months

to make a bow.

But...it takes 15 years.

It starts when the tree

is first planted.

You cut the wood too soon,

the bow lacks strength,

too late, it becomes brittle.
