Gianluca, Federico and Alessandro earn their living as rock-climbers. Their repetitive and yet fascinating job seems to take up all their energy as well as any desire to go beyond their usual activities. An urgent call comes and forces the three of them to drive to a small village in the Abruzzi mountains threatened by a rockfall. Alessandro, Federico and Gianluca feel the importance of their sudden mission, but events drive them to lose contact with everyday issues. Maybe there will be no rockfall at all... Maybe explosives are threatening everything that has been built up to now...
