With his traitorous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov) seizing control of the territory, Vladimir is convinced by old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) to assemble a force capable of returning to Kievan Rus, overthrowing the tyrannical Yaropolk and returning power to the kingdom's rightful heir.
