Summary :

user submitted synopsis
Life for the pioneers living on the plateau did not allow for many comforts. To subsist meant working from sun-rise until sun-set. And then a stranger came to the plateau, an ex-contortionist who brought life with him, and who taught the pioneers the meaning of joy with a profound and simple philosophy. He teaches the farmers to take delight in a field of flowers, to wonder in awe at the sight of a majestic stag.
