Grandfather, his grandson and Bosa, a village schoolteacher whose school has been closed, are the only one living in the nearly deserted village on the top of the mountain. Grandfather, feeling the approach of death, sends his grandson Cane to the nearest city to sell their only cow, to buy an icon for a church that he wants to rebuild, to find a woman and to buy a keepsake. Grandson goes to the town for the first time. There he meets Jasna, a nice town girl who lives with a mother that works in a kindergarten during daytime and at the brothel in the evening. The Brothel is controlled by Marko, as are many other things in the town. Cane gets together with two likable town crooks that are willing to help him gain Jasna’s attention. Fulfilling his promise to grandfather and running from Marko and his gang, Cane comes back to the village just in time to find Grandfather ready to marry Bosa, his longtime love. While grandfather fights back Marko and his men, Cane and Jasna are taking his place in front of the altar of a newly rebuilt church, as youth is taking over old, even in the remotest villages.
