This film is a collection of stories related with wolf in north Portugal mountains.
At one peak among rocky ranges, there is a village called Pitões das Junias. At nightfall hour, shepherds used to gather and tell stories. Myth, death, killings…things might or might not happened but inspired by internal fighting between human and wolf, between us and the wild.
