The movie was made for the 600th anniversary of the event. Serbian duke Lazar in 1389 refuses to obey the Turkish sultan Murat who is marching towards Serbia with a great army, in order to conquer entire Europe. Although aware that he is weaker, without enough army, duke Lazar decides to confront him. Serbian lords are not united. Most of them want to fight, even if the price is defeat, but some of them hesitate. Everyone fit to hold a weapon is sent to the Kosovo field. The battle of Kosovo, in 1389 ended with no winners - both armies shed blood and got tired. Lazar and Murat both died. But, nevertheless, the battle of Kosovo was a victory, not for Serbian state, which soon became Turkish, but for Europe, whom Serbia rescued with bodies of her heroes from the first and the strongest Turkish attack».
