A monastery perched in the mountains of North Africa during the 1990s. Eight French monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers. But when an Islamic fundamentalist group massacres a team of foreign workers, fear sweeps though the region and the brothers are faced with an agonizing decision. Should they abandon their monastery and the community who depend on them, or stay despite the dangers and growing menace in their midst? Based on a true story, this beautifully directed, immaculately performed and award-winning drama builds to an extraordinarily moving climax, and has been acclaimed as a contemporary masterpiece.
