The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled nearby a creek. It is their leader Kelab's (JÜRGEN VOGEL) responsibility to be the keeper of the group’s holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab is hunting, the settlement is attacked. The members of the tribe are brutally murdered, amongst them Kelab’s wife and son, only one newborn survives... and Tineka is gone! Blinded by pain and fury, Kelab is out for one thing alone – vengeance! The pursuit of the murderers is shaping up to be quite an odyssey for Kelab. He fights for the infant’s survival and against the forces of nature. And a fatal error even turns Kelab from hunter to hunted. On top of all that, the loneliness causes Kelab to doubt his actions more and more. When Kelab finally faces the murderers of his clan, his greatest challenge will be not to become a victimizer himself…
1991, "Iceman", a perfectly preserved mummy of a man who lived approximately 5000 years ago, was found in ice on the border between Austria and Italy. Numerous studies conclude that he was killed by another. This is a story of revenge that dramatically reconstructs the events that led to his death.
