Gangsters and thugs run the small Sardinian town of Orgosolo, a place where crime proliferates despite the picturesque views afforded by the local geography. This is the harsh reality of daily life for a local shepherd who tries to keep to himself but is eventually accused of theft and murder. Rather than try his luck with the crime bosses, he flees to the mountains to try to escape his fate, a task that proves more difficult than originally planned.
