Aidai (Neisipkul Omarbekova) is an elderly medicine woman, a Kazakh Baksy,  who has the power to find a person's lost soul, heal the crippled and locate stolen cattle. For years, Aidai has been serving her local Kazakh community and living on the land that belongs to a rich businessman, Batyr (Farkhad Amankulov), who feels indebted to her because she helped his wife to conceive his son, Asan (Almat Ayanov).

When local gangsters decide that Batyr's land would be a prime location for a petrol station and a motel, Aidai puts up a fight, as the land is what connects her to her spiritual powers.  Ignoring threats from the gangsters, Batyr goes away on vacation, but when he returns Aidai has disappeared and his land has been excavated. He is furious, so when the petrol station burns down in a freak accident, it seems like just revenge – until his son is kidnapped. Devastated and at a loss, Batyr goes looking for Aidai’s help.
