Feudal Serbia in 1308. Monk Dorotej, gatherer of herbs, comes to a monastery
to cure old prior. Monk Nikanor prepares taking over of the monastery,
and his mistrust towards Dorotej turns into open conflict
when the prior gets well. News spread among people that Dorotej is a
miracle worker. Feudal Lord Laus invites Dorotej to cure him from malignant
wound. Dadara, Army commander, imposes himself on mistress
Jelena, Laus' wife, hoping that Laus will die and he will take over.
Jelena gets close to Dorotej, who cures people regardless of their
importance, but by sufferings. Naturally, a spiritual connection between
the two of them grows into love. Dark forces of evil are awakened.
Nikanor and Dadara lose their last chance to take over. In the world
they represent, there's no place for humanity and love.
