Guzal, a 14 year old girl loses her parents in infancy.
A religious couple decided to adopt her. Fourteen years later, the girl’s adoptive father decides to marry his adopted girl. The wife’s objections (the girl’s adoptive mother) and his girl’s cries and pleas are futile in changing the man’s decision.
The girl runs away with her classmate, a young boy but the man along with his men follow and find them in the forests around the village. Man injures the boy’s foot by shooting and takes the girl back towards home. On the way back, a dispute between the adoptive father and the daughter results in the daughter shooting and killing the father first and then herself.
