Savalan is a verdant village located in the mountainous regions of Azerbaijan province, and is constantly attacked by Azerbaijani and Russian bandits. The villagers gather around and talk with the village headman and decide to hire a gunman. The headman and the peddler go to Doğubayazıt, a border town of Turkey, and return with a bunch of professional gunmen. After the gunmen arrive in the village, the villagers face various challenges. The tale of Savalan is narrated by an Ashik (someone who plays a lute family instrument and sings in Azeri).
