Robbers pose no threat to him, he ends up defeating a gang and saving the life of one of them called Atara, making him a manager to his homestead. He also helps out poor Ivan by hiring him but he falls in love with Elena - one of the servant's daughter, whom Saydarov also fancies. Saydarov rapes the girl and then marries her, giving her a fortune to make up for her lost love. Ivan, though, wants revenge and steals Elena from him.
