Karabas is a difficult man: a hard-gambling, hard-drinking, childish guy who always prioritise himself first in his family. When his first wife, Zhipara, calls to tell him she has found their long-lost son, Uluk, Karabas rushes to her, much to the dismay of his much younger, pregnant second wife Turganbyubyu. Soon the new family dynamics are stretched past their limits, and Karabas is caught between the two women bearing his sons: one re-born and one yet to come.
