The film takes us back to the beginning of the 20th century, to a small Armenian village. It tells us about the struggle of Alexander, a lawyer with democratic beliefs, who protects the interests of the workers against Grigor-agha. Even his love towards Grigor-agha's daughter does not make him yield and give up his beliefs. He is doomed to be exiled.
