It's the 15th Century and we're in the Berchtesgadener Land.  A love affair has begun between Lambert, the son of an official and Jula, the daughter of a peasant.  Their fathers, however, have gotten into a huge argument because of a misunderstanding concerning ownership of pasture land.  When Jula's father's hut is burnt down, Jula mishandled, and her deaf and dumb brother murdered, the peasants rise up in revolt against the Berchtesgaden prince, Pienzenauer.  The alpine pastures are embroiled in a wave of violence and the loving pair won't be able to play farmer and maid again until the king restores the piece ... uhhh ... "peace".
