Olenin journeys to the Caucasus as a cadet, to fight among its wild peoples in the Caucasian Was. Agonizing at the emptiness of his life, Olenin suffers from an identity crisis. He starts to wear Cossack dress and falls in love with Maryanka, though she has already been promised to his friend Lukashka. He fails in bonding with the peoples of the mountains and Maryanka turns him down. During a hunting trip in the forest, Olenin gets lost ... and there, finds himself. He discovers a path out of his identity crisis. He has an epiphany and earns an insight into the secret of happiness. Until now he has been gazing inside of himself. Now there is a reversal to the world outside: "Happiness lies in living for others".
