The Slovene Alpine Rescue team is a voluntary organisation operating within the Slovene Alpine Club. Established in 1912, its highly humanitarian services are still efficient. Over the years many things have changed, such as the methods of rescue, organisation and equipment and, not least, the type of accident. The members of the Alpine Rescue team often risk their lives to save injured mountaineers or hikers in distress. The film, besides illustrating the modern rescue techniques, offers a view of past rescue activities with a unique film reconstruction on this subject.
