2005, Above Chamonix, a section of the mythical Drus mountain has just collapsed. DORIA, a glaciologist in his forties, rushes to research this increasingly unstable site and prepares an expedition. For the climbers, a competition is organized. MARTIN, a former lover of DORIA, returns for the occasion. An American climber who has had his moment of glory, MARTIN is challenged to open a new route on this collapsed mountain.
Up there, at over 2000 metres, at the foot of the Drus, DORIA and MARTIN meet again.
