En el amanecer del siglo V, Roma se tambalea al borde del abismo. El gran Imperio que otrora dominara el mundo occidental durante doce gloriosos siglos, se muestra peligrosamente vulnerable a sus antiguos enemigos: las grandes tribus bárbaras de vándalos y visigodos que presienten que su tiempo ha llegado. Sin embargo, son peores los rumores de un nuevo poder que surge en el Este. Una nación de feroces guerreros a caballo, los hunos, aterroriza la frontera.

El joven Atila, nieto del rey de este pueblo, vive como rehén en el palacio imperial de Roma para que su abuelo se mantenga fiel a su alianza con el emperador romano. Desde allí contempla la desintegración de Occidente y aprende a despreciar y odiar a los decadentes romanos. Su único sueño es escapar y llegar a su tierra, a las llanuras de Asia central, donde no hay muros y hombres y caballos, como un mismo ser, cabalgan en libertad.
