The series follows the life of Sava Lađarski, from times just before the First World War when he was a young man from a poor farming family, through to the mid-thirties of the twentieth century, when the life of his adult daughter Dunja becomes the focus of the storyline.
This is a saga of (un)fulfilled love, relation between city and farming environments, as well as between the rich family of Grinfild and the poor family of Lađarski; of deeply hidden family secrets, plots and intrigues, presenting a cross-section of a turbulent epoch depicted. The storyline is rich with unexpected twists and turns which often keep the spectator hanging in suspense until each of the following episodes.
The first two episodes were based on the movie of the same title, which gained numerous awards both in its home country and abroad. The third and fourth episode joined comprised the movie “Black Horses”, while the episodes starting from the fifth one present the viewers with completely new material, which broadens the storyline and introduces fresh thrills.
