DESCRIPTION

synopsis

Turn of the 8th century. The Iberian Peninsula is a giant battle field with Christians at war against Muslims. To the north lie the reconquered territories of Asturias, Castille and Leon. To the south, the still powerful Islamic kingdoms of Cordoba and Granada. In the center, a struggle over the powerful strategic city of Toledo. 

A Muslim raid commanded by Abu Bark sows chaos in a small village in no man's land, between the city of Toledo and the Islamic kingdom to the south.  The peasants try to defend themselves against the Muslim army, but their attempt is desparate and futile. In one of the homes, Martín and his elder brother, Andrés, do their best to protect their mother and young Blanca while waiting for reinforcements. Andrés is a brave young man, and when Muslim soldiers arrive at the house, he fights them heroically, but Andrés is outnumbered.  Martín, hiding with Blanca, looks on helpless as his brother and mother die a terrible death. 

By the time the troops commanded by, Martín's father, Rodrigo, arrive hours later, it is already too late. Martín and Blanca have survived, but this is no consolation for the boy. Martín feels he is a coward, that he failed to protect his loved ones. And this wound will haunt him for the rest of his life… 
The drama has sold to various territories, including Romania, Latin America (except Brazil) and CIS plus the Baltic countries.
