THE LEGEND THE DARK OF MOUNTAIN

Synopsis

Sasseneire is a pasture, high in the mountains, abandoned by the villagers for the past twenty years because of a dark tale, which still haunts the elderly. Why should rumours of a deadly curse let such rich grassland go to waste when the parish is so poor ? The young farmers get their way and when summer comes they lead their herd 2300m up on the mountain pasture, under the watchful eye of the master cheesemaker, his nephew, four men and a young boy. Quickly, the remarks of the old Barthelemy install a climate of fear and superstition in the group ; then the ?illness? starts to strike the herd. Placed under quarantine, the mountain men are held prisoners of the threatening ice cap. Everything comes to a head?
