Film Synopsis

The women do the work in a remote village while the men are fighting in 2nd WW. A small group of deserters is hiding in the mountains and when Musa joins them, his little brother Bahtiyar acts as the liaison between the men and the village. When Barat, the lewd head of the kolkhoz, is killed, by the deserter Ahad, the KGB arrive to look for the deserters and life for Sugra and Bahtiyar takes yet another dramatic turn.
