It's the harvest season in a village with fertile farms. The efforts of the people are gone in vain because of locusts. Several of the locals who do not tolerate this economic and psychological impact, consider themselves locusts and go searching for wheat in deserts; and when they find nothing, they plunder the people by invading the village. The people first tolerate them, then when things get nasty they try to stop them and a brutal battle happens between them.
