Only The Animals

SYNOPSIS

A woman is missing. The day after a snowstorm, her car is found on the side of the isolated road leading to the plateau. When the police has no lead, 5 people know they are all connected to the disapearance. They all have a secret, but no one knows that it all started far away from this windy mountain, on another continent, where the sun burns and desire dictates it’s law careless about poverty.
