This film portrays a collection of chilling tales about encounters with wolves in a village in northern Portugal. At nightfall hour, shepherds used to gather and tell stories. Myth, death, killings… things might or might not happened but inspired by aboriginal battles between human and the wild. The tellers’ eccentricities blur fact and fiction, which lead to a world that seems lost in time.
