Tragicomedy based on D.Kldiashvili’s play with the same name. A mountain village in pre-revolutionary Georgia. The hard laborer Anton, a kind-hearted man, suddenly falls to the ground for no apparent reason. Villagers and people from nearby settlements come to his mother to express their condolences. They don’t know the reason and are scared about their relatives: what if a similar misfortune befalls them. A fierce dispute ensues followed by a scuffle. Old Maya tries to calm down the people and in the morning Anton appears on the doorstep. He has recovered and is ready to work in the fields.
