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? Despite the growing menace in their midst, they slowly realize that they have no choice but to stay… come what may.
