Since time immemorial, the vast Ukrainian forests have harbored countless secrets and unfathomable mysteries. They are home to wondrous mythical creatures dwelling among ancient trees, faithfully guarding their sacred realm. Mavka is a Soul of the Forest and its newly chosen Guardian. Her primary mission is to protect the Forest and its sacrosanct Heart - the source of life itself - against any aggression or intrusion, including on the part of humans. Lukash is an unassuming village boy, who has a great love of music and pours his talent into playing his wooden flute and dreaming of touring the world as a professional musician but has a great fear of playing in public. However, Lukash's music does help bring about something truly remarkable: Mavka and Lukash meet and fall in love. From the start, their union is pitted against formidable odds, but the obstacles loom even larger once the avaricious Kalyna arrives on the scene and sets about building a sawmill at the edge of the Forest. This serves as a facade to mask her true purpose: to get a hold of the Heart of the Forest (with the selfish purpose to stay young and beautiful forever) - the key to which is Mavka herself, who is already rendered vulnerable by her blossoming feelings for Lukash. To get to Mavka, Kalyna wields Lukash as her weapon and strikes anger and fear into the hearts of the villagers. Will Mavka and Lukash be able to defend their feelings for each other? Will Mavka be able to save the forest and protect her love? Will each of the two young lovers from different worlds make the right choice?
