Aiday is an old Kazakh Baksy: she can heal people, find their souls and tell them where their stolen cattle has been hidden. She has been living on the land of a rich businessman, Ryspek, for years because that is the place she gets her strength to heal from. When local authorities want to build a gas station and motel over where her house stands, she is distraught. But the construction takes place and Aida disappears. A year later, when someone burns down the gas station, the station's developers think that Ryspek, the landowner, should cover their losses. When he refuses to do so, they kidnap his son. Now Ryspek has to find Aida, because only she will be able to find his son.
