A sweeping epic which traces the life of Emperor Asoka, the grandson of Chandragupta Maurya who ascended the throne of Magadha in the 3rd century B.C. To extend the borders of his empire, Asoka waged one of the bloodiest battles in history with the neighbouring kingdom of Kalinga, leaving it ravaged and devastated. Confronted by the aftermath of his conquest in which hundreds of thousands lost their lives, Asoka is overcome with remorse and renounces the path of war to dedicate his life to spreading the teachings of Buddhism across the world. This is a story based on legends. This film does not claim to be a complete historical account of Asoka's life but an attempt to follow his journey.
