A monastery perched in the mountains of North Africa in the 1990s.

Eight French Christian monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps though the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. Should they leave?

Despite the growing menace in their midst, they slowly realize that they have no choice but to stay… come what may. Based on fact the film has taken France by storm and provoked a national inquest into what happened to the monks
