Sam Riley plays Greider, a lone rider came to a village where it is decided to spend the winter, even if it is received with some hostility from villagers. Even so, he finds his hosting from Luzi (Paula Beer) and her widowed mother (Carmen Gratl). Raised in America, but speaking fluent German, Greider returns to his native country with the apparent plans to photograph the locals and landscapes with his daguerreotype. In reality, however, things are quite different, as he has in mind to take revenge on the old Brenner (Hans-Michael Rehberg), brutal ruler who oppresses the villagers of the village for several decades. Strewn with thick snow, and he begins to flow blood.
