This film is in memory of the Georgian warriors of all times who had given their lives for their country. It is based on an old Georgian legend: Preparing to defend their country from the onslaught of foreign conquerors, people started building a fortress, but each time the wall had reached the roof level, it collapsed. The wall will hold if the most handsome young man is immured in it, predicted a fortune-teller. And forward stepped a young man who was ready to sacrifice his life for his country. Thanks to that self-sacrifice, the fortress was erected, and nothing and no one could ever destroy it.
