The year is 1609. War is underway. The Polish-Lithuanian army has captured the town of Smolensk, but a Russian garrison headed by voivode Mikhail Shein will hold the fortress down to the last warrior. Smolensk is the key fortress on the invaders’ way to Moscow. It will not go down without a fight—even small children know that.
Sasha is a little kid who prepares homemade explosive out of bread dough and summons the magical King with a Fiery Shield and Flaming Spear. Before the King’s arrival, Sasha and his friend Fyodor ask to become the voivode’s assistants. They are up to ruin the plans of the evil Polish king Sigismund III and defeat the dark army that lurks in the besieged fortress at night.
