the theme is : not to waste time hating because it might be too late in the end!

both men spend their life hating eachother and one night they are trapped under a tree and realize how it was soo stupid to do so. soon they become friends but nature has other plans for them. they get eaten by wolves. they could have lived a happy life by resolving the feud a long time ago.

there are other themes as well:

not to fight over nature

fights of our fathers dont have to be ours
