Storyline

An old woman Iliytza carries her sick grandchild to monastery so that abbot may say a prayer for the child's recovery. In the forest, she comes across a wounded rebel, gives him food and tells him to wait. She hopes that the abbot will hide the rebel. However, the abbot is away from monastery. A frightened monk hastily turns Iliytza away after saying a prayer for health. On her way back Iliytza crosses the swollen river on a raft with a half-died child. She finds the rebel and arranges with him to wait for her until darkness. The Turks waiting in ambush capture Iliytza. When one of them attempts to strike her, the rebel shoots him dead. The Turks kill him. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>
