The Emperor’s Government is trying to find the pretext to evict the Chechen people from their homes and resettle the area with the Cossacks. The population sends a letter to the Governor asking him to rescind the decision about their deportation. Seidula who is nothing but a crook, makes up a false letter in which the Chechens approve their deportation and then assure illiterate peasants to prove heir consent with their own fingerprints. The beguiled people are being deported to Turkey as a result. Chechen Eliso is in love with Vajia from Khevi. Before her deportation desperate Eliso puts the empty village on fire. Vajia manages somehow to have the general annul the order of deportation, but it’s already too late.
