A young woman is found, emaciated and unconscious, in the mountains surrounding a village in Transylvania. When the villagers discover she is of the same ethnic group that was driven out of the region years before, they are reminded of their part in the bloodshed, and old wounds reopen.
While the story unfolds in the microcosm of small village in the past,its themes are universal and timeless: the fear of the outsider, the supernatural versus the natural, and the force of desire between a man and a woman.
