Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko appears in the most unusual role - he becomes a samurai. Action takes place in 1844. Escaping from the persecution of the Emperor of Japan, a samurai enters the territory of Ukraine. By chance, he meets a young Taras Shevchenko, whom he decides to teach the techniques of traditional Japanese martial arts. Together, they begin to fight for the freedom of the Ukrainian people.

The samurai rules are simple: fight with two swords, train for half a day and not run into trouble for the sake of feelings. But how to accomplish at least one, when your name is Taras Shevchenko, your girlfriend is tormented by a bastard, and your mentor beats you to train your iron will?

The premiere of Inglorious Serfs was supposed to take place in early October, but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The movie will be released on December 31.

As we reported earlier, the production of a movie-parable of Mykhailo Illienko Toloka, which is based on Taras Shevchenko's ballad, has finished. The film’s events cover more than 400 years and 14 important events of the Ukrainian history.

The film offers a four-hundred-year-old parable with a taste of bitter irony - between tragedy and comedy, where time and historic events are partially embodied in the simulated, sometimes even toy form.
