In 1839, after decades of conflict, the Russian army and the Muslims of Chechnya are on the verge of a truce.

To marry her Jamal Eddin must convert to Christianity, a sacrifice he is prepared to make. But his devotion to his bride will be pitted against his duty to his homeland when Jamal Eddin is called to take his rightful place leading the Muslims.
