Two brothers follow the tracks of a wolf that bit to death one of their sheep. The path through snowy slopes is very demanding and Mamil, the younger brother, is not always able to keep pace with his older and more experienced brother, Zelamkh. When, after a log walk, they go back home, there is no one in the village. Following the tracks, the brothers catch up with a column led by Russian soldiers. They experience two, completely different reactions to what they can see. The film was inspired by the brutal evictions of Chechens from their land in 1944.
