Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
The oddly backward attitudes of a remote Alpine village are highlighted in this story about Bohme (Franco Nero) a stranger who arrives in town one day and creates suspicious looks and queries among the villagers when he appears to have some secret or another. Two disparate brothers, one shy and the other not, are curious about the stranger for their own reasons. Eventually, Bohme lets the townspeople know that he is actually investigating the murder of his mother who lived in a nearby village. As the evidence against the killer grows, Bohme's life is in jeopardy, but the villagers do not seem to be greatly affected one way or another with either his quest or its outcome.
