The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled near a creek. It is their leader Kelab's responsibility to be the keeper of the group's holy shrine Tineka.

Someone decided to make it in a language most audiences would not understand, and not bother with subtitles. And chose Rhaeto-Romance, but it is unlikely that any variant of Indo-European would have got so far west 5300 years ago.

It is also excessively brutal. The aftermath of a battle would have made a lot more sense.
People of the era probably had a lot more social interconnections than are shown.
Someone is hung up on the idea of Heroic Individualism and wasted a grand opportunity.
