Three Hungarian mountaineers leave to practise the sport they love the most. They have not prepared for a real expedition. They do not intend to conquer some inviolate peak or attempt again some presticious feat. They use their strenght and technical ability to open a path in the snow, climb rock and ice walls and prepare an adeguate shelter for the night. The film portrays the activity of three men, searching their faces, catching their movements, trying to fix some significant moments, and asks the old age question, for which many answers have been given with different shades of meaning every time, concerning the personal sensivity of the mountaineer.
