In eindrucksvollen Bildern entführt Agnes Meng mit ihrem Film das Publikum in das entlegene Dorf Pitões das Junias im Nordosten Portugals. Der Film ist eine Sammlung von Geschichten und Mythen um die dort ansässigen Wölfe: Weitergegeben seit Generationen von Hirten und DorfbewohnerInnen, inspiriert von der atemberaubenden Schönheit des isolierenden Gebirges und der permanenten Konfrontation mit den Gefahren der rauen Umgebung, verschwimmen die Grenzen zwischen realen Begebenheiten und Mystik zunehmend.
