A lone man leaves his valley home and undertakes a journey in search of glaciers and mountain peaks. He is looking to escape his humdrum everyday life and a polluted, noisy world whose rising temperatures are melting the icy mountains and reducing them to dust. As he climbs higher, he looks further within himself; the silence, broken only by the whispering wind, makes him realise that the world he is trying to leave behind is not about to let him escape so easily.
