5300 years ago, a Neolithic clan settles in the Ötztal Alps. Kelab keeps their holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab is hunting, the settlement is attacked. Except for one newborn, everyone in the village is brutally murdered – including Kelab’s wife and son – and Tineka is gone. Kelab seeking vengeance follows the murderers on a grand odyssey fighting constantly – for the infant’s survival; against the immense forces of nature; against others he encounters; and, amidst his loneliness, against doubt her the morality of his mission. Dialogue in an archaic language eschewing subtitles, Felix Randau’s film is “… a visceral thrill ride.” – The Hollywood Reporter
