It is the tenth night of the great war between the Pandavas and Kauravas. Bhishma, the venerable patriarch of the families, lies fatally wounded on the plains of Kurukshetra. On his deathbed he offers Radheya, his nemesis, a chance to rule the Kuru kingdom by capturing Yudhishthira.
In the Pandava camp, Yudhishthira, a reluctant warrior, tries desperately to hold his allies together and escape capture without appearing to be a coward.
Meanwhile, his young and impulsive nephew, Abhimanyu, a warrior prince, dreams of glory and yearns for a chance to save the Pandava cause.
The lives of these three warriors, Yudhisthira, Radheya and Abhimanyu, collide brutally on the thirteenth day.
A story of how stories are created, how fact becomes fiction, how history becomes mythology, and how men become legends, The Thirteenth Day re-imagines India’s greatest epic like never before.
