Before World War I, portions of Macedonian Yugoslavia were under the rulership of the Ottoman Empire. For centuries, it was a common Ottoman practice to take prominent local citizens or their children back to Turkey as hostages to the central government. This movie follows the adventures of a group of Turkish and Macedonian captives on their way to the capital. The brutality of their guards does not deter them from resisting, and one of their number escapes.
