Skill and bravery turn a local brigand, named Shibil, into a threat to the Ottoman authorities and a legend among young men. Shibil falls in love with Rada, the daughter of a rich merchant Veliko Kekhaya. In order to demonstrate his loyalty to the Ottoman government, Veliko Kekhaya devises an unheard of trap for Shibil – using his own daughter as bait. Shibil and Rada embrace love, which in the eyes of their suffering mothers and the villagers is equal to death.
This is a story of the impossible love, seen through the eyes of an unexpected hero, which at the story end reveals its nature, - the incarnated shadow of the main character.
