Halia Oskylko loses her husband during the turmoil of the civil war. She is faithful to him for a long time. Meanwhile, Pavlo Kovalchuk, her friend’s brother, is attracted to her. Halia kind of returns his feeling but she hopes to find her lost husband, that is why she refrains from a relationship with him. Suddenly, she finds out that her husband is alive and works in Kharkiv. 

Halia goes there but the visit ends in a tragedy. Serhii lives with another woman, and they are married. If not for Kovalchuk, Halia would have died in a tram accident. The meeting with Halia revives feelings in her ex-husband. He wants to divorce Nina, his second wife, and return to Halia. But it is too late, as Halia marries Kovalchuk.

The film is lost.
