The story revolves around two friends from Turkmen tribes who are in love with each other’s sisters. However, their union faces numerous challenges due to a mysterious murder that occurred twenty years prior. The murder of one of the friends’ fathers remains a well-guarded secret, known only to an old singer who had left the tribe long ago and now resides in a remote desert area.

The widow of the murdered man has never moved on, still mourning her husband’s death after two decades. She initially opposes her son’s marriage due to this long-standing grief. Eventually, with her consent, the marriage preparations commence.

The old singer, the keeper of the murder secret, is invited to the wedding ceremony. During the wedding night, the long-buried truth about the murder is unveiled. It is revealed that the father of one of the friends was killed by the father of the other. This shocking revelation disrupts the wedding, and cries for retribution and vengeance fill the air.

However, the old singer, who possesses unique wisdom, intervenes. With his mediation, the “No More Blood” ceremony is organized. This event serves as a platform for reconciliation and the resolution of the twenty-year-old grudge between the two tribes, allowing peace to be restored. The story highlights the power of forgiveness and the healing potential of reconciliation in the face of longstanding feuds.
