When a forest fire breaks out in the area where the village's cattle are grazing a catastrophe not blamed on Dragon but on the "women's sorcery" employed to bring rain , the haunting cries of the animals echo throughout the valley. Although the village committee decides it would be better to slaughter the cattle than to let them continue to suffer, Dragon offers to hike up into the forest and steer the cattle to safety, asking only in return to be able to live in the village and dig clay again.
The mayor agrees to the offer, giving Dragon one week to return with the cattle or his cottage will be burnt to the ground. Wary that Dragon might turn the cattle over to smugglers along the Polish border - and also deciding that the animosity between Dragon who earns back his Christian name Martin and Simon cannot go unresolved - the committee decide that Simon must accompany be the one to accompany him despite other willing volunteers. Throughout the journey, Simon regards all of Dragon's acts with suspicion.
Although he is repeatedly proven wrong in his assumptions about Dragon, it is ultimately Simon's insecurity over his marriage to Eva that pushes him towards an act that assures that Dragon cannot return home again.

General info Available formats Synopsis: Show more Show less A key film from Slovak cinema's golden era, Eduard Greener's 'Dragon's Return' is a radical fusion of ancient folklore and experimental modernism - and an exciting re-discovery. A reclusive potter nicknamed 'Dragon' is exiled from his isolated mountain village. Years later he returns, aiming to win back the trust of the villagers, but faces suspicion, guilt, and simmering violence. Set at an unspecified time in the distant past in a world ruled by superstition, this deceptively simple story is imbued with mythic qualities.
