Estonia, 1870. The uncompromising new owner of Robber’s Rise must battle with hard work, his spiteful neighbor and with his own family and beliefs to transform the poor land into a flourishing farm of his dreams – to bring truth and justice to a god forsaken place.

Young and energetic man Andres together with his wife Krõõt arrives to his new farm bought on a loan to establish their new life. Robber’s Rise must become a place, that’ll take care of the family. Household needs a lot of work and consistency – battle with nature, fate and his spiteful neighbor Pearu begins. When life deals the man more sufferings than longawaited successes, the man searches desperately for truth and justice – from court, tavern and the Bible, sacrificing his family, friends and eventually himself in the process.
