The ancient traditions of Mount Cathedral, home of the Keepers, are at risk. Their mountain Corridor, so necessary for the survival of many of the animals, is threatened.

When Grundel, their leader, investigates, a darker character appears: SaMäel, Lord of Abadon, fallen angel and troublemaker extraordinaire.
