In the French Alps, around Mount Pilat, filmmaker Rob Hope explores little known Neolithic archaeological remains from up to 4,000 years ago. He holes up in a stone cabin that is open to all trekkers in those parts and follows the traces of long-past human life all around the area. He notes a mysterious large-scale system of drystone walls, mounds and cairns, whose builders and exact time of building remain unsolved. Tracing this ancient and forgotten drystone wall system across the high mountainous area, he finds a mountaintop Iron Age stone fort amid mixtures of the remains of later periods, including Roman and Medieval architectural ruins. As he journeys deeper into these remote and wild places still remaining there today, he also delves deeper into a distant human past.
