    In the footsteps of Marco Polo, set off to discover the oases of the Silk Road with their enchanting names. Who has not dreamed of wandering through the great bazaar of Kashgar where Uighurs, Kirghiz, Tajiks and Kazakhs meet? Who has not dreamt of contemplating its imposing earthen walls which, for centuries, sheltered the greatest treasures of Central Asia? Ella Maillart and Peter Fleming found the scent of civilisation there after their arduous journey.

    More than 2000 years ago, the Steppe Empire belonged to a multitude of Turkic tribes that regularly clashed and sometimes reunited. The Xiongnu (sometimes considered the ancestors of the Huns) were the first of these Turkic tribes to reign terror over East Turkestan. In the 2nd century BC, in order to repel them, a Chinese emissary was sent to the west of the Taklamakan desert and beyond the Pamir range to seal an alliance with a distant tribe, hereditary enemy of the Turks. Historically, this journey is at the origin of the Silk Road, whose great history is recounted in this film.
