Viviane, a French Consul's wife, is in New Guinea to find exotic feathers for export to Paris. She encounters four European travelers who are en route to "La Vallée": The Valley, high in the Guinean mountains, is shown on maps as 'Obscured by Clouds' and is beyond their previous experiences. Viviane joins their trek to find rare feathers and soon becomes entwined in their journey. Their extended stay with the Mapuga tribe brings a denouement between western and indigenous values before their final quest toward the 'Valley of the Gods'. Written by

The soundtrack to this film was released as the Pink Floyd album "Obscured By Clouds". Due to a spat with the film company after filming was complete, the Floyd decided to mention "La Vallee" in the album's title and instead chose the "Obscured By Clouds" line in the film. In response, "Obscured By Clouds" was added to the end of the film's title so it could gain from Pink Floyd's popularity. See more
