A lone rider arrives in a small village high in the mountains. Strangers are not welcomed here but the gold in the newcomer’s pockets changes the mind of Brenner, the local boss. Nothing is known about him except that he has a camera and doesn’t speak much. Before long, the first conflict begins with the Brenner gang and soon the snow is stained with fresh blood. This Austrian western is recognized as a superior genre piece and shows that the classic western storyline works well in any setting, including a snowy village in the remote Austrian foothills.
