In this Georgian drama with folk songs and native dances, a man returns to his mountain home after many years. He marvels that very little has changed in the wake of World War I and the Russian Revolution, noting the village is the same as when he left it in 1916. When he falls for a local woman, he is challenged to a fight by a rival suitor. The challenger is killed by the man, but the girl is killed by mistake when the dead man's family seeks vengeance. After his adventures, the man decides to stay with the Chessvur mountain people.
