“God won’t ask me how many mountains I have climbed but what I have done for others”: this is the message of Armando Aste, the great rock climber, who passed away in 2017. The documentary shows us the places fundamental in the formation of the man and climber, going to the origins of his faith. The journey ends in Africa: with the inauguration of a hospital built thanks to a donation from Aste. The reflection on the values inspired by the mountains opens up to reflection on man and his limitations.
