While leading an attack on a Northern India village, Lafcadia (Khan), the loyal lieutenant of a brutal feudal lord, pauses, sickened by the blood that stains him and renounces violence. But the lord visits a terrible revenge on his family. Rather than rebuckling his sword and further tainting his already compromised moral standing, Lafcadia flees into the mountains. 'The Warrior''s simplicity makes it seem like an archetypal yarn, but it has a personality that belies its lack of dialogue. And, in an age of tongue-in-cheek jaunts, it's refreshingly uncompromising in its seriousness and beauty.
