A poignant, touching and sensitive love story set amidst war. Young Seit is in love with his friend Jamila who's forcibly married off to Seit's elder brother.Jamila doesn't realize Seit's love for him but considers him a close friend.Her absent and abusive husband suddenly disappears on the war-front barely a week after marriage.
Then comes a Russian soldier to the village-Daniyar who steals the heart of young Jamila and loses his in return. But it is wrong to judge Jamila for this as there has been enough injustice and pain in her life already and she is just a young girl after all.
Seit sees all this and is deeply pained for he must have been hopeful about getting together with her but says nothing and rather stands watch guard to the two's stealthy meetings so that the villagers don't discover them.Imagine his heart-wrenching sacrifice and pain then.
Seit personifies the deepest meaning of true love..to be happy just by seeing your loved one happy...even if you have to pay for it with your tears..
