A Greek story of romance, war, freedom and honor in 1803. A large crowd gathers to participate in the brutal Turk's victory celebration over the Souliots. Near Eastern music is playing as the beautiful young Soulot dancer named Zavoulina is commissioned to perform. She finds out that she is chosen to be the bride for Veli, the son of the Turkish Sultan Ali Pasha. Zavoulina screams, "I will not marry your son. I am a Souliot! Your son Veli slaughtered my father and mother, and your brave soldiers raped and killed my Souliot sisters. They burned down our villages, but now you order me to marry and love your son? Never!
This is the story of her escape, her rescue by a heroic Souliot freedom fighter named Diamantis and her brave battle for freedom ending in the Dance of Zalongo.
