Some hermit monks live their quite, stereotypical lives in the monastery, oblivious to the fact that the surrounding world is changing. One day, they find a half-dead man in front of their gate. They save him and he decides to stay with them. They named him Cyprian.
Who is this taciturn young man with blood on his hands, whose mysterious past, full of love and death, has led him to a place where sins are redeemed through miracles?
