Two alpinists, Ola and Bole, had set out for the adventure of their life: the winter ascent of the dangerous Messer-Schmidt route. Ola made short notes about what happened on the ascent until they had to give up of the summit. Desperate, losing hope that they will survive, they imagine happier scenario in which they could be. Film fullfills their wishes and so begins the good old quest for a better life.
