Steven McMahon, a young American struggling to reconcile his priestly vocation with his very human desire for love and intimacy, flees to Peru on mission, thinking he will more readily find serenity there. In the high sierra of the Andes mountains he meets a young school teacher fleeing from some demons of her own. They both come to love and respect the campesinos they meet in a pueblo on the edge of civilization, and soon find themselves entrapped between a harsh military junta and Shining Path guerrillas who threaten mayhem across the mountain countryside.
