Alain Robert, the strongest climber in the world, the only one able to overcome the difficulties of an 8b without ropes. After years of hard training and dangerous climbs to become the best, he discovers, and has the courage to admit, that what really interests him now is to gain the attention of the public. He therefore decides to abandon the cliffs and to climb in the towns where everyone can see him. Chicago, Paris, New York, Brooklyn, Alain Robert keeps everyone in suspense and staring upwards, including the police, following his daring and quick ascent up the walls of a skyscraper or the cables of a suspension bridge.
