    Brief synopsis

    Winter 1797 - 1798: Napoleonic troops, allied with Swiss revolutionaries, occupy the canton of Vaud and begin preparing for the military conquest of Bern and its vassals. Resistance to the advance of Enlightenment ideas, however, coalesces in the highlands beyond the snow-blocked passes. This clash of philosophies weighs on the romantic fate of David and Julie, who are caught up in the whirlwind of parental conflict, emotional crises, and betrayed friendships, all burdened by civil and religious traditions.
