Oswald is the last of Meryl's children. Both are to herd their sheep until the next generation takes over. Winter is rude and the harsh temperatures sink into their skin day after day. As the Franco-Spanish war approaches, someone knocks at their door seeking for refuge, who might it be? Hundreds of marks ornate his body, he's charming, good looking and probably rich. The small herd won't suffice for the family's survival, Meryl will soon give birth and the workload may worsen their already terrible situation. Why shouldn't the poor farmers take advantage of him? Problems will rain down the sky as the raging snowstorm surrounding the valley dissimulates a beast lurking nearby.
