Aleksander Dovzhenko directs this silent fantasy drama, made in 1928, in which an elderly man tells his grandson about the legend of the Scythian treasure. Believing the tales to be true, the boy searches for the treasure throughout the remainder of his life. Building on this theme of folklore, the film also deals with historical facts, covering industrialisation and the Ukranian Steppe, as well as criticising the European bourgeoisie.
