Regaining consciousness, half-buried by a landslide after a fall in the mountains, a young man finds himself in a landscape he hardly recognises. Wandering through the country in search of a means to return to civilisation, he is given shelter by a family living in a great house in the middle of the wilderness. Trying to explain who he is and where he comes from he finds that his world is completely unknown, and his descriptions are regarded as delusions of a mind deranged by his recent fall. As he struggles to learn the rules and customs of a society very different from his own, he falls in love with one of the daughters of the house, but finds that even love, as he knows it, is apparently unknown among his new people.
