synopsis

In the western world, any reference to the legend of the Grail invariably inspires a greater sense of expectation than do other symbols or legends incorporated into official cults. Possibly this difference is due to the process of searching implicit in this legend, which makes it truly different to all the others.
But what is the Grail? An object or a spiritual quest? Is there any proof that allows us to suppose it really existed? And what about the destruction of the Cathar and Occitane nobility? Was it a crusade against heretics, or does it hide a secret related to the Grail?
Through an analysis of the legend of Parsifal, the seeker of the Grail, and the studies of the German historian Otto Rähn, sent by Himmler to look for the Grail in Occitane, we gain an insight into a world which is at once magical, mysterious and wildly beautiful.
