Sometime in the 17th century, a noble family sets out to cross the Alps with a retinue of servants and six horse-drawn coaches, accompanied by both mounted and foot soldiers to protect the cavalcade from waylaying thieves. Yet a thunderstorm followed by the arrogance of the mighty disrupt the fragile balance of things: the hierarchy of sovereignty, the people and their beliefs and, not least, their route of passage. This is a story about power and powerlessness, faith and knowledge, and the fact that in the end, gravity always gets you down.
