Choosing the plot, the composer first of all tried to bring the images of the Ukrainian people, his life and a song, to attract the attention of the listener to the stage of the theater. The plot talks about those times when, after the liquidation of the Zaporizhzhya Sich, part of the Cossacks under the influence of the Cossack foreman in 1775, moved behind the Danube and fell under the power of the Sultanian Turkey. There, their fate was difficult - the Turkish government tried to use them as a military force directed against their homeland. The Cossacks soon realized that the foreman's promise to settle them on the "free lands" turned out to be a deception, and began to demand a return to their homeland. Understanding that the Cossacks are ready to make their way to their homeland and that Russia supports the requirements of the Cossacks, the Turkish Sultan was forced to allow them to return to Ukraine.
