Eight French monks live in harmony with their Muslim neighbours in a monastery near Tibhirine, in the mountains of Algeria, in the 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps though the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. Should they leave?
