The events of the story take place in the 1930s, in a Hutsul village on the Polish-Romanian border in Pokuttia. A group of bandits under the leadership of the «noble robber» Ivan Semeniuk operates in this area. On the mountain road, the robbers kidnap the Austrian baroness Aurora, and require the men, who are escorting her, to pay a ransom of 20,000 lei until the next morning. Having received the ransom Semenyuk says to the baroness that he is going to give hiim oney to the needy.
Meanwhile, Olga, a priest’s daughter, makes her dying father a promise to marry his friend Martyn Pogodnyak, a Polish officer of the local border outpost. She keeps her promise and, after the funeral, they decide to marry. During the wedding ceremony, the river's flow carries her away. Ivan Semeniuk rescues Olga but the approach of the commandant forces him to flee.
