Shooting "Zakhara Berkut" will start in the middle of June in the Carpathians. The release is scheduled for 2019, but there is no exact date yet.

This is how the official synopsis sounds: "1241 year. The Mongolian horde headed by Khan Burunda is moving to the west, destroying everything in its path. Having reached the high Carpathian Mountains, the army stops at the foot. However, at night several local hunters – the Berkut brothers – secretly make their way to the camp and free the prisoners. Out of himself with fury, the khan decides to go straight to revenge and destroy the Carpathian settlements. To do this, he finds a traitor among the locals, who reveals to him a secret passage in the mountains. However, a small community of mountain hunters, led by Zakhar Berkut, has his own plan for how to stop a large enemy forever. "
