Through the lens of his camera a young army doctor observes a small village, made up of a group of huts situated at an altitude of 3000 metres. It is wartime: his companions are other youths called to the front. The young man takes and develops his own photographs, accumulating hundreds of images. Slowly, his album is enriched with faces, gestures and expressions, becoming a private account of a common experience, in which sharing, friendship and a life given up to nature are not enough to keep the thoughts of war away.
