On a tiny island off the Estonian shores there live seven fishing families. They have lived here for generations. War has claimed all the adult male population of the island. Now only women, children and old men are left. But neither the old, nor the young can hide from the war. The fascists hanged the old lygyl for sympathizing with the partisans. Old Laas is saved by his daughter at the cost of treason. Animosity breaks out on the island, old grudges are remembered. And still the islanders realize that at the hard time of war they must stick together. And now it is old Laas who chooses death to save the islanders...
