Sosana is a shepherd, lives with his family in the village and with great respect and love, continues his heritage, doing his ancestors job. Sosana can't even imagine another life: nature, village, big green valley and a family - this is all his treasure, his world and an everyday life. Geologist start an oil exploration works in his village and modern civilization breaks into Sosana's world with all its grumble and noise of technology.
