In a Swiss mountain village, hikers head out, a fountain splashes reassuringly and a churchwarden prepares a mass. There’s something going on here, but what is it? Men with high-tech measuring instruments pepper the landscape, and local people study their surroundings intensely. An ecological dystopia about a community living under constant threat.
