Early Middle Ages. Joined by fate, knights Willibrord and Bezimienny (Unnamed) want to find and baptise a pagan settlement in the mountains. Although Christianisation is the only way to save its inhabitants from the coming extermination, the protagonists’ mission might be stopped by the pagan priest together with the village leader Geowold. Their doings prove a great test of faith for the two strangers. In this last bastion of ‘old creed’ Willibrord and Bezimienny may count on a surprising ally – Prahwe, Geowold’s charismatic daughter. Soon love will be confronted with hatred, dialogue – with violence, madness – with rules, and many people will have to die.
