Májjen wears a sarvilakki. The bright red, embroidered headdress is part of her tribe's costume. All the women wear it with pride. But the Christian missionaries think the devil lives under the odd bonnet. They want to force Májjen to stop wearing her sarvilakki forever – by force, if necessary. Will the young woman manage to uphold the tradition of her tribe?
