Birlyant Ramzaeva sees her life bursting because of the war in Chechnya. Her song and her music are her only weapons. The poet and playwright Makkal Sabdoulaev, the great love of her life, is also her mentor. Before disappearing in July 2000, carried off by the Russian forces, he will sign several of the texts put into music by Birlyant.

The history of this simple woman presents, under a particular angle, a real as life point of view on the Chechnya conflict and the consequences of the war and tragic destiny of its people.
