In rural heights, a school receives a warrant from the Ministry of Education, stating that if the required capacity is not fulfilled, the school should shut down. The teacher decides to go to the neighbouring villages, heights and forests in person to convince all the parents that is a must for their children to get educated. When he falls ill, his fiancée steps forward to assist him.
