Henry Lawless is a young mystic visionary who retreats to a quiet valley to pursue a spiritual odyssey. Shortly after his arrival, the superficial peace that cloaked this glen is disturbed by his presence and activities. His generosity provokes greed; his love provokes hatreds; his search for truth reveals tragic falsities.
Though the valley has 'the mystery of a hidden wilderness', its inhabitants destroy its peace and beauty by their conflicts - each carries within a wilderness of self-absorption.
