According to the synopsis, the events take place in the Carpathians, at the beginning of the 18th century. The cruel reign of the Polish gentry forces the Hutsuls to run to the mountains. Two brothers, Oleksa and Ivan Dovbush are beyond the law and they become opryshky (partakers of the people’s liberation struggle in the 16th century in Halychyna, Bukovyna, and Zakarpattia). The brothers become the enemy to each other during the search of revenge to gentry for the murder of their parents. One of them strives for money and another one for justice. The Hutsuls start the uprising headed by Oleksa. The Polish gentry do everything possible to eliminate Oleksa Dovbush; however, he outwitted them.
