Apocalypto

Epic historical adventure tale set against the backdrop of a Mayan civilisation falling into a decline.

A young tribesman hides his pregnant wife and son in an underground cavern when his people are attacked by marauders from a Mayan city. Unable to withstand the assault, he and his fellow tribesmen are escorted to the city, where the ruler is intent on appeasing the sun god Kukulkan by sacrificing them in a bloody ritual.
