He has climbed seven of the eight thousand metre peaks and is the only man who has been twice on K2, the second highest mountain in the world. The road to this mountaineering goals began on sandstone rocks not above 50 metres high. He was born near these rocks where he still lives. But what is the normal life of an apinist and what sort of man is he? Thisi is the subject that the film proposes to deal with.
