In a forge shaped as a dark triangle, five fellow blacksmiths work in peace. Young Hovik, the foreman’s son who learns violin at the music school, brings some lightness in this working atmosphere. The five workers are very fond of him. One day, an extraordinary event occurs breaking their calm and peaceful life. Mko, one of them, introduces a young beautiful sweet woman named Ljuba. The friends first feel ill at ease in front of this ‘feminine intrusion’, but soon encourage the two lovers to get married and live in the forge. The war starts and the little city changes fast. Mko and Ljuba go and fight in the war. Hovik grows up.
In this very beautiful black and white film, Henrik Malian enables us to share ordinary people’s ordinary life and succeeds in making them become close to us.
