Based on an acclaimed novel series by Mikhail Aleksandrovich Sholokhov, this six-hour, ideologically-driven epic celebrates the Cossacks and their experiences with revolutionary wars in Russia. Grigori exemplifies the honest and traditional character of Cossacks as he balances his love, family, and community family life through the jolting experiences of World War I, the Russian Revolution, and the Civil War.
