The documentary recalls Tita Piaz (1987-1948) one of the most charismatic personages of dolomite mountaneering between the late 1800s and 1930s. During his long career. he opened about fifty new routes on the mountains some of which were extremely difficult. Thirty-two of these climbs were in his Valle di Fassa, sixteen on the Eastern Dolomites and two in Kaisergebirge. Piaz was an alpine guide with a strong character and many-sided personality. He was not only active in mountaneering, but also in the political, tourist and humanitarian field, siding with anyone who suffered wrong and unjustice, and he was extremely generous. His life was interspersed with periodical family breavements, imprisonments, ostracism by the Austrian mountaneering associations, controversies, great mountain rescues and many public and private recognitions.
