Protagonists of the film are 4 friends from school years – Tigran, Levon, Armen and Eduard. The destiny takes two of them to the Artsakh war where they heroically defend their native land. The topic of war and love develop in the film side by side. Love for the native county, childhood friends and the dream-girl empowers and supports in hardships. The whole tragedy of war, stranded with humor, is presented through the fates of the central characters, eliciting smile and drawing to tears, while the protagonists, endowed with best human qualities can serve an example for the younger generation.
