Little Bashu loses his home and family in an raid and instinctively flees to a region far away from the battle fronts.
In this alien environment everything seems strange to the boy. Naï, a woman whose husband has gone on a journey, finds Bashu in her farm and gives him shelter. After Bashu tells her of his past life, Naï accepts him as a son and tries to initiate him into the ways of life in the region.
