Four sons in the Kirile family - Otar, Nodar, Make and the younger Guram. And all the brothers immediately ask permission to marry. The head of the institute's folk song branch turns to Guram for help in finding rare motives. Guram goes to his native village, where he wants to record songs performed by local elders. At the same time, he wants to marry Nelli, but his parents are against it: it seems to them that he is still too young to marry.
