The Great Khan's empire sends troops to war, and the army unexpectedly brings back a tricolored bracelet, a hereditary heirloom of the small kingdom's queen. This leads to a curse that begins to erode the empire from within.
The proud Great Khan searches far and wide for talented individuals to break the curse that has possessed his daughter, Turandot.
Karaf, an orphan who wandered into the Khan's empire, meets the princess and they develop mutual admiration for each other.
Out of sympathy for Turandot's suffering, Karaf risks his life to rescue his beloved, unaware that the curse is closely tied to his mysterious origins.
The imperial royal family is thrown into chaos as the curse unleashes a brutal and bloody storm. A bloodthirsty general seeks to seize power using the power of the tricolored bracelet, and the tensions between ruler and subject escalate.
Each person faces difficult choices as various forces become entangled in the vortex created by the curse.
