Gradwitz was patrolling the carpathians mountains looking for his enemy Georg Znaeym
The Znaeym family has been trespassing on the Gradwitz’s land because they thought hat the land was theirs but then the Gradwitz family sued them and the judge said that the land belonged to the Gradwitz family but that never stopped the Znaeym family from trespassing
Gorge and Gradwitz find each other and they are about to shoot each other
The tree gets struck by lightning and now they are both trapped under the tree
The two men finally get unstuck from the tree.
The two men decide that it isn’t worth staying mad at each other over land that will be there way longer than they are.
