A team of spanish climbers together with Argentine climbers are forced to wait for a long time for a change in the adverse weather conditions before being able to attempt the conquest of Cerro Torre. A mountain that once again turns out to be a "question of mentality and not muscles" and that's requires patience apart from courage. The film describes the stay and attempts of the climbers, the features of Patagonia and the fundamental historical monuments of alpinism of which these mountains have become the protagonists.
