The Conquerors

At the dawn of time, a young man and woman set out to conquer an inhospitable land in the hope of transforming it into paradise.

Their quest is not without consequences and pushes them ever further, ever higher.

But to what end?

Between prehistory and Genesis, Eden and hell, the animated film The Conquerors calls into question human conquests and the rise of civilizations.
