To escape the fate of a wife and servant that awaits her according to the laws of the harsh mountains of Albania, Hana Doda follows her uncle's advice and invokes the archaic law of the Kanun. This allows sworn virgins to carry a rifle and live freely as men. Hana henceforth becomes Mark, Mark Doda.
Mark rediscovers Hana, finally piecing back together the two souls that for years have been living inside her body. She is reborn as a new, free and complete creature.
