In a small village in the mountains of Chechnya, people live as one family. Enjoy a peaceful summer day together. Such an opportunity is not often given to Chechens, because history here goes in a circle, namely, from a protracted and exhausting war to a short truce and again to war. They say here that you need to be ready to fight all the time. Death has become a daily reality. The teenager Shamkhan will have to face death for the first time, to enter the circle of adult life, as they enter the trance dance of the Zikr. The women silently watch the men engaged in the craft of death. They keep life and keep the hope contained in the old Chechen greeting: "Come free!"
