Nomad: The Warrior

Synopsis: Rebirth of a nation. Not since Genghis Khan has anyone united the Kazakh tribes. Jungar tribesmen of Mongolia rule Kazakh land, but a prophecy has it that a descendant of Genghis will unite his people. Oraz the Wise travels the land looking for the child who will fulfill the prophecy. He finds that infant and protects him from the warriors of Galdan, the Jungar king. Oraz recruits one lad from each Kazakh tribe and teaches them the art of war, loyalty, and camaraderie. Two are the best: Mansur and Erali. They are like brothers. Each must prove himself; both fall in love with the same young woman; both fall into enemy hands. At what cost does a prophecy come to pass?

For centuries, the Great Asian region

bordered by Russia and China

has been home to my people,

the Kazakhs -

nomadic tribesmen

roaming from one pasture to another.

Since the time of our legendary

ancestor, Genghis Khan,

hordes of foreign invaders

have tried to conquer this land

and put an end to our

peaceful way of life.

Of all those who threatened

the lives of my people,

none were more

brutal or determined

than the ferocious

Jungar tribesmen from Mongolia.

The Jungars brought war against us,

yet the Kazakh tribal leaders

were still unable to agree

about how to unite the tribes

against a deadly enemy.

Many of my people fled

from the horrors of the war.

This period has become known

as the "Flight With Bloody Feet."

Many more of us remained, hoping

to see the fulfillment of the prophecy

that one day a warrior descendant

of Genghis Khan

will rise up, and unite all the Kazakhs

in a revolt against our enemies.

l, Oraz, have always believed

l would see this come to pass

and l have searched

tirelessly, far and wide

for the promised child.

Surround him!

Are you Oraz the Wise?

Yes, that is my name.

Galdan, the ruler of all Jungars,

orders that we bring you to him.

You can inform your sovereign

that l am a Kazakh, not a Jungar.

As such, l do not follow his orders.

lf you refuse to go willingly,

we'll take you there by force.

Seize him!

Take him alive!

You must understand, Oraz,

if we return without you,

we'll lose our heads.

l should go then.

l don't want your children

to curse my name.

l found him, my sovereign.

So you are Oraz the Wise?

l have heard much about you.

ls it true that you understand

the language of all living creatures?

That talent belongs only to God.

You won't deny, however,

that you understand horses?

Every Kazakh

knows about horses.

Let us see.

Pick the best horse for me.

That chestnut stallion. . .

. . . is the best.

A horse fit for a great warrior,

one who makes the earth tremble.

Do you know, wise man,

what awaits you if you are mistaken?

Hey, Kazakh. . .

you were right.

This is truly a horse

worthy of a great ruler.

You were right, Kazakh!

You were right.

l will give you

your weight in gold

and make you my horse-master.

Freedom is worth

more than gold.

lf you refuse my gift,

you may soon lose your good luck.

l do not rely on luck.

My path is clear before me.

You speak with such certainty

of the future.

Tell me what the future holds for me.

You know yourself,

even stars fall from the skies

and new stars are born.

Who is this newborn star?

What is his name?

You and l both will find out

when the time comes.

Whatever perils

awaited me in my path,

l never lost hope.

One day, l asked the Almighty,

"O Creator,

when will you send my people

the fearless warrior

who will unite

all of the Kazakh tribes

and push our foes from our land?"

And at that moment l heard

a child crying.

Suddenly l understood

that the savior of my people

had just been born.

l have seen a terrible prophecy

that brings danger to my master!

My liege.

My master and protector!

You will reign for many years

but a child has been born

to a Kazakh Sultan

who will grow to defeat you

unless you kill him at once!

So Oraz was right.

Sharish, find this Kazakh child

and kill him at once.

Yes, my liege.

God save you, traveler.

And you too.

At last, the child of the prophecy.

ls something the matter?

Jungars are approaching. Quickly,

prepare for their attack.


Surround them!

Protect the carriage with your lives!
