Its winter and the four experienced mountaineers want to climb one of the most famous routes: the so called Maestri-Egger on Cerro Torre. The first ascent of this needle was made in 1959. Although many climbers tried to do it again, the route hasnt been repeated since then. The mountain turns back to the heroes of the film, but they still have a lot of fun. This film is a homage to friendship, happiness, the beauty of nature .
