The main little hero will face a difficult test. Leaving Batyr alone with the flock, his father goes to the mountains in search of medicinal herbs that can heal Batyr's seriously ill mother. However, there the father becomes a prisoner of the Dev. Now Batyr, in order to cure his mother, must be rescued from his father's captivity.
