Inspired by the true story of an exorcism. Johannes, a man with the heart of a child, lives secluded in an Alpine hut with his mother. Daily life is governed by prayer and rituals. But suddenly, modernity intrudes into their world of nature and divine worship. A tourist development threatens to poison their paradise and awaken the devil.
