With the intention of climbing a peak the next day, two young walkers arrive at the Zsygmondy refuge, where however there is only one place remaining… Moullet recounts the preparation for an ascent that will transform itself into a disaster and presents a battle between adventurers ready to do anything to obtain the most comfort and privileged conditions. With his shrewd and ironic gaze, the filmmaker analyses the paradox of a place that has suddenly become more hostile than the surrounding wilderness.
