In Bolivia, the glaciers are melting.
Samuel, an old ski lift operator, is looking out of a window on the rooftop of the world. Through generations his family lived and worked in the snowy mountains, but now snow fails. While scientists are discussing and measuring ominous changes, Samuel honors the mountain spirits.
The clouds continue to drift by.
