The young man Levko inherits his uncle’s mill, and later — ham disappeared under the mystical circumstances of the money-lender Jankel. Unexpected enrichment stirs him an unbridled thirst for money. When Levko completely loses the capacity for compassion, friendship, and love, impure power comes into play. How will end the torment of the hero’s conscience — the victory of lust or the triumph of true feelings?
