High altitude guides Pascal Colas e Vincent Terrisse from Chamonix have chosen the Island of Réunion in Madagascar as the place for interesting climbs which also allow to engage in the new sport called canyoning. They are joined by the fifteen years old Gilbert Ah-Fat, an island native, who since he was 11 has been fascinated by the possibility of climbing these mountains. Gilbert’s enthusiasm is the basis for the movie which sees the trio perform various spectacular ascents, sometimes completed by stunning descents along the waterfalls.
