The film is based on the Biblical Parable of the Prodigal Son and tells about a village, cut off from the world and hidden in the mountains of Lori, Armenia. The village has its own way of life and a special value system of pride and dignity. The village tradition of ''salt and bread'' still works to these days.

His elder brother's heart is full of revenge.
