The film shows the adventures of alpine shepherds, or rather, shepherd boys, who, while tending their flocks, experience the joys and heartaches of growing up, first love, dreams of travelling to distant places and the brooding charm of a nearby mill. Besides their fantasies, the boys face far more down-to-earth difficulties. Blaže is caught in a fox trap and Terezka is the cause of dispute between Lenart and Ferjanč. Lenart discovers that his trousers have disappeared after his dip in the lake and to get back at Ferjanč, frays the ropes on their great swing which swoops back and forth out over a precipice. Will his childish act of revenge lead to tragedy, or will childish innocence renew the strength of their friendship?
