Beira Alta, town of Manteigas, 11 January of 1954 The winter is at the zenith of its power. Snow covers almost all Portusgalia, from the coast thill the mountains. Manteigas, a small town in the mountains of "Serra da Estrela", the main mountains of Portusgalia, and a ditch of Integralists. Life runs in its normal way, the workers go to the factories of wool, shepards take the sheep to the hills nearby... But at night, a few men gather in arms on a nearby oakland, they speak that "The King has returned!" to overturn the damn "White Niger Queen!" They speak also about Marshal Marquis of Avila, that has returned from the exile to lead the Kings men and return the "Old Order" taking off the Free-Masons that run Lisbon and their filthy Queen... They are careful, the Guarda Real (gendarme/militarised police) is always with eyes open to meetings, they pretend to be hunters that going to hunt a big boar that attacked some sheep... The word spreads through the hills and mountains of the Province of Beira Alta. If it is real that Avila has returned to fight for the King, a new uprising will come.
