This is the very first feature to have ever told a story of the Russian revolutionary, Chapaev, in such a gripping and heart-stirring manner. The series takes us through thorny days of the national hero as the numerous layers of love and hate, pride and shame, great victory and inconsolable loss unfold. The abundance of action and raw emotion enlighten the viewer to the innumerable twists and turns on the path to the final victory of the Red Army and Chapaev’s agonizing solitude.

Through epic battles, bloodbaths and selfless heroism, Chapaev will blaze through the pages of history books right to the glorious victory. But no recognition and fame can fill the hole in his heart, aching for the person long lost, leaving the hero forever alone on his pedestal.

This is a story of harsh times, atrocious violence, lost chances and rooky mistakes. The plot masterly incorporates the great tragedy of the Russian people and the heartbreaking love story into one breathtaking series.
