After Midsummer's Day Kertu goes missing without a trace. Her entire family panics because Kertu is considered to be a simpleton due to her modest and closed nature. After a long search Kertu is found trembling and hiding under the bed of the alcohol-loving womanizer Villu. The judgemental villagers chastise Villu and accuse him of taking advantage of the woman. But what really happened that night? The truth slowly unraveling is more shocking than anyone could ever imagine..
