The story of Georgian patriots who went against Soviet Russian rule.
The story describes of Georgian patriotism and resistance towards Soviet Russian rule of Republic of Georgia. Two friends meet each other randomly while participating in wrestling competition. They are both good wrestlers and they would become good friends later on in life, while they are having common beliefs towards the freedom and independence of the Georgian society. They try to fulfill their political beliefs using political and military ways. However, the rebellious movement would be brought down by the Soviet law enforcers. The underlying message of the movie is to show the basic mentality and emotion of Georgia and also other Eastern European countries while they were under the Soviet rule.
