Attila, King of the Huns is at the pinnacle of his power: he has conquered half the world, but he has not destroyed Rome. Even the Goths submit to him. Gothic Princess Mikolt is seething with hatred and seeking revenge for the killing of her parents and the subjugation of her people. Through clever ruses, she makes Attila fall for her, and kills him on the wedding night. Deep beneath her frenzied thirst for revenge, she harbours a passionate love for him, too. Attila’s murder and death are the first and last moment of quenching her lust for vengeance and for a passionate embrace.
