Enchanted by his horse riding skills, the Queen offers Matsi Khvitia to serve in her escort. Matsi rejects the offer. Above all, during the night he sets free the captives about to be sold in the morning. Eka, Matsi’s lover is among the rescued. Relentless against the trade of captives, Matsi repeatedly enrages the Queen. On one occasion he attacks the ship full of captives and sets them free. After that together with Eka he sets forth to Svanetia. The Queen’s guards kill the couple on the road.
