The magnificent story of one'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 B.C. To extend the borders of his empire, Asoka waged one of the bloodiest battles in history with the neighboring kingdom of Kalinga leaving it ravaged and devestated. 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 teaching of Buddhism across the world.
