On March 18, 1921, a peace treaty was signed in Riga between the RSFSR and the Ukrainian SSR on the one hand and Poland on the other. This peace ended the Polish-Soviet war and defined the borders in the east of Europe.

The Belarusians did not accept the Polish occupation. For four years now, unrest has been taking place in Western Belarus, a guerrilla war is going on, agents of Soviet intelligence are working. A young Belarusian Pavel Smolich lives with his mother in Western Belarus – not far from the border with the BSSR. His older brother Anton is a partisan fighting the Polish invaders. In contrast, Pasha declares his non-interference in social and political life and takes a neutral position: neither yours nor ours. His life credo: let others fight, and I will live by my own rules. Pasha lives like this until, along with the tragic death of his mother at the hands of Polish soldiers, trouble comes to his house. The death of a loved one makes the hero think about simple human values: about loved ones, about the homeland, which is now divided by the border and so needs the help of its citizens…
