Gooka, a respected judge, returns home from a long journey. As the ship enters the harbour, he still hasn't got a clue of what awaits him at home. Instead of being welcomed by his lady, the beautiful Lidra, and by joyful shouts of his son Yorimar, he's welcomed only by burnt ruins. He learns that Lidra was badly injured in the fire and that Yorimar was kidnapped and nobody knows who did it or where they took him.
