The main character, boy called Buta is luckier than others because he has got a wise adviser (tutor) who sells a liquid soap. This man helps boy in every step of his way. The wise man dreams to restore an old mill, whereas Buta wishes for different thing – he wants to create a big pattern on the top of the mountain by using stones as all who flies high – birds and people in the planes - would be able to watch and admire it. But he is surrounded by envious village boys who prevent him. Buta, who has wisdom too young to have, reveals their miserable nature that gets them irritated very much. They have confrontations every now and then. A representative of the soap making company comes to the village to promote his product. After he falls in love with a local girl, called Gyoncha. Gyoncha needs to finish her work - to weave a carpet of her life and then to get married to him. Multiple of storylines crossing each other are coming to an end at the same time – the carpet is woven, the pattern is created and an old miller falls into an eternal sleep after restoring his mill finally. His soul flies high over the village watching all that is happening there.
