Dimo is a forest ranger in a Bulgarian mountain village; he is used to wielding his authority in order to protect the state forest he fosters and guards from being damaged. But wood is a resource coveted by many: as firewood by the poorest of the village as well as by the mayor, who is logging illegally and wants to get more out of the forest than Dimo can approve. When Dimo witnesses an illegal wood transport, he is confronted with his helplessness.
