Eepiline filmilugu Eestimaa metsikust loodusest, kus vaataja ees rulluvad lahti meie kodumaa eriilmelised maastikud koos metsloomade ja tuhandete läbirändavate linnuparvedega. Filmi peategelane on meie metsade suurim imetaja ja põliselanik põder. Läbi looduse avanevad meie mineviku püüdlused ja vajadused ning meie iseloom, mida maastikud on tuhandete aastate jooksul hoidnud ja kinnitanud.
