The magnificent story of one man's journey from savage warrior to messenger of peace.

Asoka traces the life of Emperor Asoka, the grandson of Chandragupta Maurya who ascended the throne of Magadha in the 3rd century BC.

To extend the borders of his empire, Asoka waged one of the bloodiest wars in history with the neighbouring kingdom of Kalinga, leaving it ravaged and devastated.

Confronted by the aftermath of his conquest in which hundreds of thousands lost their lives, Asoka is overcome with remorse and renounces the path of war to dedicate his life to spreading the teachings of Buddhism across the world.

This is a story based on legends. The film does not claim to be a complete historical account of Asoka's life, but an attempt to follow his journey.
